Eduardo Salvador's story

Eduardo Salvador, 64, lives with his life partner and their children. He makes his living cultivating corn on rented land in the same area in which he lives. He has spent many years making his living by farming and these years have given him a lot of experience in this field of business. He always gets good crops because he knows the perfect time to sow. He has many clients because what he sells is of high quality and his prices are very affordable and his service is excellent. Eduardo is known for his kindness; he is very dedicated to his work and is a fighter ready to get ahead to have a more prosperous future. He believes we are the masters of our fate and he wants to take the correct path. His last crop lost nearly 100% of what he sowed due to a weather phenomenon. Because he lost his earnings and in order to continue to sow he needs capital which is why he is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL that will allow him to buy corn, fertilizer, insecticide, etc. Eduardo is confident his earnings will cover the payments of the funding. He also has backing of a small shop where he sells basic staple products. In this way he will be able to give his family a better quality life at the same time.
