Bertila's story

Bertila is 45 years old and lives in her own house with her children. She works in agriculture, specifically basic grains, corn, beans and others. She has lots of experience and always obtains the best harvests. Her land is located in an agricultural area, and she sells in the surrounding areas. She is well known by everyone, and has won many customers as she sells quality products which are affordable, as well as offering a good service. To help with her expenses she also receives help from some of her children.

Bertila is a hard-working woman, who is always on the lookout for new opportunities to help her have a more prosperous future. She wants to increase her crop production this season, and has therefore requested a loan from INTEGRAL to buy corn seeds, beans, fertilizers, tools, etc. Bertila does not have any loan experience but does have good payment references. She is sure that she will be able to repay her debt, and will be able to give her family a good life.
