Currently Jose is working as a farmer growing basic grains such as corn and beans. As well he has a small store which his wife runs. Because of the type of person he is, he has customers who seek him out for his fair prices. Now he needs a loan from INTEGRAL to buy agricultural supplies for his land. He has finished those he had so in time for the next season, he needs to buy: seeds, manure, fertilizer, pesticide etc.
Jose hopes to obtain this loan as he has no other way of feeding his family.
