Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos is thirty-five years old and lives in his own home with his wife and children. He never finished school because his parents did not have the financial resources to pay for his tuition. The most important thing he inherited from his parents is the gift of work. They taught him to work the earth and this is how he earns a living and brings bread to his home on a daily basis. Every year he plants corn and beans since they are the main staple grains grown in the region. After reaping the harvest, he sells part of his crop and keeps the rest to feed his family. Since the time to plant is right now, he is requesting this loan from INTEGRAL to invest by purchasing the necessary supplies (seeds, fertilizers, and insecticides, etc.) to realize an abundant harvest and be able to continue bringing bread to his home on a daily basis, as well as continue improving his and his family’s quality of life.
