A loan of $650 helped to buy seeds, compost, insecticides, etc.


Adriana's story

Adriana is 47 years of age, and lives in her own house with her children. Her husband passed away several years ago, and since then she has been responsible for supporting her household. Along with help from her children, she works in agriculture. Each year they repeat the task of sowing corn and sorghum, as these are the basic grains most frequently harvested in the area where she lives. Adriana is very dedicated when working with her crops, and after harvesting them she sells part of the produce. This is how she earns a living and provides for her household. In addition to the income she gets from her agricultural work, she also receives a pension which helps her to survive and provide for her household. She is a hardworking, responsible woman with good references from her neighbors, as over time she has won the trust of many people who prefer her produce. Her dream is to be able to provide her family with better opportunities in life, as they live in very humble conditions which do not afford them a better quality of life. Adriana has decided to request this loan from INTEGRAL to buy the agricultural supplies she needs to plant her crops, such as seeds, compost, insecticides, etc. She cannot wait any longer to plant her crops as the sowing season has already begun. With the help of God and this institution she hopes to have an abundant harvest, which will allow her to repay the loan and continue providing for her household every day.
