A loan of $700 helped to purchase fertilizer, seeds, and insecticides, etc.

Lázaro's story

Lazaro has lived in his own house with his family for the past fourteen years. He cultivates corn and sorghum. He learned to work the earth as a child. Farming has helped him to provide for his family. He gets up very early every day to work the earth and to be able to harvest his crops, which are his main source of income. He is the main financial provider for his family and he hopes to continue being so well into the future. He is very well-known in the region as a hard-working person who is both friendly and responsible. Many people give both him and his work good references. It is worth noting that he lives in simple and humble conditions, which he hopes to change little by little. He is requesting this loan from INTEGRAL to invest by purchasing the necessary supplies (fertilizer, seeds, and insecticides, etc.) to start planting. It is only through this work that he can bring bread to his home on a daily basis. He hopes that with the help of the institution he will be able to achieve his dream of reaping an abundant harvest, pay off his loan, and continue bringing bread to his home on a daily basis.
