Domingo Bautista
Domingo Bautista, 37 years of age, lives with his family. He dedicates himself to growing basic grains such as: corn and beans. He has dedicated himself to this activity for various years, therefore he now has a great deal of experience. He is well known in the zone where he lives for being a hard working, honest and responsible man, as well as very collaborative. He plants his crops on a parcel of land that he rents year-to-year from one of his neighbors. This is how Domingo makes a living, and generates daily income for his home. His dream is to continue providing what’s necessary for his family to survive, and he never loses the hope that one day his life’s opportunities will improve. He has made the decision to request this loan from INTEGRAL to invest in the purchase of the necessary supplies for farming (insecticides, fertilizers, seeds, etc.) and to rent his parcel of land so he can continue to operate during the year. He does not lose faith that, in this manner, he will reach his dream of improving his and his family’s standard of living.
