Edgardo Balmore's story

Edgardo Balmore is 28 years old and lives with his family, which is composed of his wife and two children. Edgardo has worked in fishing for 13 years. Thanks to this activity, he has managed to make the money necessary to meet his family's basic needs.

While he fishes, his wife sells the seafood that they offer for sale day in and day out. Both work for a better future for their children; they dream of giving them a better quality of life that might allow their children access to better conditions than they have had.

With an enterprising vision, Edgardo made the decision to request this loan from INTEGRAL to invest in his business; he needs to buy some equipment necessary for fishing, like nets, floats, lead sinkers, leaders, etc. He has a great deal of confidence that in this way, his economic situation will improve and he will be able to continue bringing home bread every day.
