Pedro De Jesús's story
Pedro de Jesús is 57 years old and lives with his wife and children in humble conditions. He is a very honorable and hardworking man, who even despite his advancing age continues to work and fight for his dear family. From a young age Pedro de Jesús knew the land, and this knowledge has allowed him to provide sustenance to his family. Every year he plants corn, which is the principal grain in his region, then he sells his harvest at the principal locations in his town. Because he needs to invest in the necessary agricultural products (seeds, fertilizer, and insecticide, etc.) to grow corn he decided to approach INTEGRAL to apply for a loan. This will help him cover his cost and improve his yield. This way he feels that he will have another abundant harvest which will permit him to cover his loan and continue providing for his family as he always has.
