Israel Antonio's story

Israel Antonio, 59, lives with his life companion and their children. He works in agriculture, specifically growing corn and sorghum. He’s been in this line of work for many years now so he’s acquired much experience that allows him to always get good harvests. The parcel of land is located in a place that’s near his house and he’s very well known because he sells throughout the zone. People prefer him because everything he sells is of quality and his prices are affordable; besides his service is excellent. Israel is a visionary man determined to improved day to day in order to attain success in the future. He’s always working because his greatest secret is dedication and effort. He lost almost 40% of his last harvest due to a weather phenomenon so his profits didn’t amount to much and this is why he decided to ask Integral for a loan to be able to buy corn and sorghum seeds, fertilizer and tools and to lease land to plant. Israel has credit experience and takes full responsibility to repay the loan in the established time frame. At the same time he has faith that he’ll be able to give his family a better quality of life.
