Vicenta makes a living in agriculture and puts all her efforts towards a small plot of land where she grows basic grains of her country, like beans and rice. She sells a certain amount and leaves the rest to be consumed by her family. In this way, she has achieved a decent life with her own hands. Each morning she rises in order to always have food on the table in her home.
Vicenta hopes to buy agricultural supplies, since she has already run out of them and does not have sufficient capital to buy more. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL to buy seeds, manure, fertilizers, pesticides, and other items. She is the type of woman that if she has the money, she pays before the necessary date. She does not doubt that she will pay off the debt ahead of schedule.
She gives thanks to God for the opportunity offered to her and to the people with good hearts who have allowed her to realize her dream.
