Salome Gerardo's story

Salome Gerardo lives with his family that is made up of his mother and brother. They live in their own home and he makes a living farming, specifically farming corn and beans. He has ample experience as he's been making a living doing this work for several years. The land is located in an agricultural area very close to his home. He begins work very early to take advantage of the day, always obtains the best harvests, and does business in the surrounding areas. He has made many customers as people are sure that everything he sells is of the best quality, at affordable prices, and with excellent service. Moreover, he also has the support of a small day job that helps him supplement the household expenses. Salome is a hardworking man and a visionary who is always looking for new opportunities that allow him to better himself and reach success. In the last harvest he suffered a small loss due to the storm called E12 that affected the whole country. He needs to recover and increase his earnings. To do this he would like to increase his production and invest in supplies. For this reason he's requesting a loan from Integral that allows him to buy corn seed, bean seed, tools, fertilizer, insecticides, etc. Salome Gerardo has had other loans and has paid them. He has the assurance that he will pay off his debt in the established time and at the same time trusts that he will give his family a full life.
