Agustín Rufino
Agustín Rufino, 50, lives with his life partner and children in his own house. He is a farmer and sows corn and beans. There was so much demand for his last crop, there wasn’t enough to supply all of his clients. Now, he wants to increase production. Everything he sells is high quality and at a very accessible price, as well, he provides unequalled service as he’s always ready and willing to attend to clients with kindness. He’s a hard-working man willing to achieve great success in the future. He thinks that his greatest secrets are perseverance and loving your work and that’s why he decided to request a loan from INTEGRAL. With this loan, he will buy bean and corn seeds to substantially increase his crop. Agustín Rufino hopes that by doing this he will be able to give his family a full life.
