Rene's story

Rene, 43, lives with his life partner and their children in his own home. He is a farmer who cultivates corn and sorghum. He has been working as a farmer for many years, and so he has acquired a lot of experience in this line of work. He sells his crops in all of the areas that surround the place where he lives, and he has gained a lot of customers because he sells top quality products at excellent prices. In addition, he is known for serving his customers well, as he is very helpful. Rene is an enterprising man who has a strong desire to get ahead. He likes to be ready for new opportunities, as he knows that they will help him to become successful. In his last harvest he suffered a loss of 40 percent of his crops due to the weather, and he wants to recover for the 2012 season. For this reason, he is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL that will allow him to purchase corn and sorghum seeds, fertilizers, herbicides, tools, etc. Rene has good credit references and is very responsible. He knows that he will get enough earnings to pay off the loan, and at the same time he will be able to offer his family a better quality of life.
