Santos Rene
Santos lives with his wife and two children. He works in agriculture, growing corn and beans. He's been doing this for many years and has gained valuable experience that allows him to produce the best harvests. The land he works is in an agricultural area. When the harvest is ready he stores it in granaries, as shown in the photo. Santos has to invest in farming supplies, for which he needs capital, so he's seeking a loan from Integral that will allow him to buy seed, fertilizer, insecticide, tools, etc. He has good credit references and is sure he'll be able to pay off the loan on time, and he's confident he'll be able to provide his family the life they deserve.
