Abimael is 46 years old and lives in his own home together with his family which is composed of his wife and their three children. He is a very hard working man who is committed to working a lot for his family. He is an honorable and honest man who has always completed his work in the best way. He has always worked cultivating basic grains like corn and coffee, among others. But, owing to the rains that have happened in our country, his crops have slowed down and he could not complete the harvest because he found that the coffee was in bad condition. It was because of this that he reached out to Integral to seek a loan to see if he could buy agricultural supplies like: seeds, fertilizers, insecticides, etc. Today, he cannot count on the necessary resources to be able to purchase these items on his own. Abimael is thankful in advance for the help that he will receive and he is sure that with the next harvests he will be able to pay the loan on time and this way he will continue providing a better life for his family.
