Francisco lives with his life companion; they are both people who have very good references from their neighbors since they are known to be very responsible, hardworking people. Francisco works growing corn and beans which he sells at wholesale in various places in the zone; he also sells coffee that he grows with his wife.

Francisco is asking INTEGRAL for a loan to buy bean and corn seeds to plant because a phenomenon called E12 last year destroyed his crops which forced Francisco to start over from zero. One of the main reasons for his requesting the loan is that he does not have money necessary to invest in seeds, plows, shovels and manure. With it, Francisco will have everything he needs to lift up his business.
