Jose harvests corn and beans, which makes up his source of income. He feels proud because he is the only person in his household who works, and he offers the best to his family every day using his own two hands and the sweat of his brow. He would like to harvest more because he needs a higher income. Therefore, he has applied for a loan from INTEGRAL to buy farm supplies such as seeds, manure, fertilizer, and pesticides.
He believes in his own capabilities and that everything will go well for him with this loan. He hopes to continue being a role model and making his family proud.
