Lorenzo's story

Lorenzo lives in his own home with his wife and their two children. Many years ago he learned how to cultivate the land. This is what now enables him to bring home money to support his household. Every year he grows basic grains such as corn and millet. He is an incredible man who struggles to give his loving family a different life than the one they currently have. They live in very basic and humble conditions.

He earns a living working on the land. When the harvest is ready, he sells his products in the marketplaces in the region where he lives. He has great references, including his neighbors. They say he is a hard-working man who is responsible, generous, and positive.

He is seeking a loan from INTEGRAL to invest in the purchase of agricultural items that are necessary (seeds, fertilizers, insecticides, etc.) for planting. They are very important so that he will have an abundant harvest and will be able to continue bringing home the bread every day. Little by little he is able to achieve his dream of improving the quality of life of his family.
