Mariana De Jesus
Marina is very kind and hardworking. She lives with her 22-year-old son. She works hard on her own parcel of land where she grows corn and beans. Her products are very good quality and when her harvests are in she stores them in the silo shown in the photo to subsequently sell in various markets that are near her place of residence.

Marina is asking INTEGRAL for a loan to have the money needed to invest in the purchase of agricultural supplies like pest controls, fertilizer, manure and seeds, among other things needed for her crops. She hopes to increase sales to earn higher profits to give her son better economic stability.
