Gumercindo's story

Gumercindo is 57 years old. He is well-known in his area for being a very hardworking and responsible person. He grows corn and beans on a few small parcels of land. He also has a small herd of livestock, as farming is is main economic activity.

He and his wife and children work together to plow the land and to plants and take care of the crops, which they then sell. With the hope of being able to grow his business and expand his customer base, he is seeking a loan from INTEGRAL. He greatly desires to buy a greater quantity of seeds to sow, and also to purchase some containers to keep the seeds fresh. Additionally, he wants to buy pesticide.

Gumercindo wants to do the best possible job that he can. This will ensure that he has satisfied customers that will return to purchase his products again. This will have a very positive effect on the growth of his business as well as his household finances.
