Jose Antonio
José is a very responsible man who works joyfully and extremely hard to provide for his family. He lives with his wife and children, and has made a living for the past several years farming corn, beans and other staple grains.

In hopes of increasing his sales and growing his business, José is requesting this loan from INTEGRAL. He plans to use the support from this loan to purchase input items for tending his crops, including: seeds, manure, fertilizers, pesticides, etc. Since he lacks the necessary capital to make this investment on his own, he is very grateful for this opportunity to continue with his farming operation and put food on the table for his family.
