Sabino's story

Sabino lives in his own house with his wife and two children who are 18 and 15 years old. At the age of 59 he works the land with much dedication to bring sustenance to his home. Since he was a little boy he learned how to grow various basic grains which he earns his livelihood with today. Every year he plants corn and beans which are the most planted cereals in the zone where he lives with his family. He wants to be able to give his children better conditions than he and his wife have had and this is why he rises very early every day to work the land and bring the fruits of his labor home. His neighbors give very good references of his work and of his person because he’s very dedicated and responsible with his tasks. He’s an enterprising, generous, hardworking man who does everything within his reach to earn a living and bring food to his family. Agriculture is his main source of income so he wants to start planting as soon as possible since the planting season has already begun. To do so, he needs to make an investment in farm supplies like seeds, manure, insecticide, etc. for which he needs an INTEGRAL loan to help him make said investment. He hopes to obtain an abundant harvest that will make it possible for him to repay the loan and earn some income to provide sustenance for his family.
