María Paz
Maria Paz, 63, lives in her own house with her husband and three children. She is a farmer who cultivates staple grains, especially corn. In this way she provides for the needs of her family. After the harvest, she places some of the crops for sale so that she can buy other necessities, and then keeps the rest for her family's consumption. It is worth mentioning that this activity is her main source of income. Many people give good references for her and her work, because she is a woman who is hardworking, responsible and honest. Each day, she feels that the needs of her household are greater, and so she decided to request this loan from INTEGRAL. With the help of this institution, she will be able to buy the agricultural supplies she needs (seeds, fertilizers, insecticides, etc.) to continue to cultivate staple grains. This will enable her to provide for the main needs of her family, since she has no other source of income. She hopes and trusts in omnipotent God that she will get good results and will achieve her dream of providing her beloved family with better living conditions.
