A loan of $500 helped seeds, fertilizers, and insecticides, etc.

Daniel's story

Daniel, age 55, lives in his own house with his wife and two children, ages 7 and 11. He has devoted himself to cultivating the land for a long time. This is because he learned this trade from his parents. They did not have the resources needed to give him and education.

It is thanks to this knowledge that he now supports his family. He does not have any other source of income. Each year he grows corn and beans, which are the staples that are most harvested in the area where he lives.

His wish is to improve his children’s living conditions. He wants them to have opportunities that he and his wife did not have. This motivates him to work hard in order to gradually change their current situation. Of course, they live in very simple and humble conditions.

He has made the decision to request this loan from Integral. He will use the loan to buy agricultural supplies like seeds, fertilizers, and insecticides, etc. He needs these supplies in order to start planting and to be able to get an abundant harvest. This will allow him to repay the loan and improve his family’s living conditions.
