Porfirio's story

Porfirio, 54, lives in the home he owns with his family - his wife, 48, and his son,18, who is in school. He sells coconuts. In addition to his business, it's worth mentioning that he also has a job, and with those two activities he is able to cover their household needs. When he is working his wife tends to the business; they support each other in order to improve their living conditions. His son, who is studying, is his biggest inspiration to keep giving them the best so that some day he can be a professional with better opportunities than his parents had. This has motivated him to look for the best way to improve his business, as his son's needs grow and they want to have the money to give him the help that he needs.

For that reason he asks INTEGRAL for a loan to buy coconuts in bulk to meet the increased demand that will allow him to improve his profits, and thereby his quality of life. It's worth saying that he is very grateful to the institution because they have given him help with his business in the past and he hopes this time will not be an exception.
