A loan of $700 helped to buy corn and bean seeds.


Roberto's story

Roberto is 60 years old and works alongside his siblings making bread. They sell their bread from home and also by traveling around different communities in their area. Roberto is a single man who works hard so that he and his siblings can enjoy a stable life. He also works as a farmer, growing beans and corn. This work enables him to make extra profits. His biggest goal is to double the quantity of basic grains that he harvests. Roberto is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL to buy plows, pesticides and more bean and corn seeds to sow. In order to guarantee the quality of his seeds, he will also buy fertilizer. The loan will enable him to increase his sales.
