Florencia's story

Florencia lives with her beloved children in a modest house that she owns, located in a rural area. Florencia has worked with her children in agriculture for many years.

Beans and corn are the main crops she harvests every year. She does this work with her older children, who are the ones responsible for most of the work because Florencia also does the housework like a traditional mother. She grows, harvests, and sells basic grains in the town near her community.

In this way she makes her living with this work that is her main source of income. The most important thing for her is for her family to have what is necessary to survive. This is what motivates her to work very hard every day to be able to give her family their daily bread and stock the main household necessities.

She has made the decision to request this loan from INTEGRAL to invest in agricultural supplies (fertilizer, pesticide, seed, etc.) that will allow her to do the planting this year and be able to get the best harvest. She hope the results are favorable and she will be able to achieve her goal of giving her family better living conditions than those they have now, because her economic situation is very difficult.
