Ulises De Jesús
Ulises de Jesús is 27 years old and lives together with his wife and children. He works in the farming trade, which he learned very well from his father.

Ulises plants beans and corn, a business that has managed to keep the family going for generations and upon which his wife and children are completely dependent. That's the reason he is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL, with the goal of sowing a greater quantity of seeds and thus obtaining a larger harvest, which he will be able to sell at a good price. It's very important for Ulises to have the money necessary to buy the best seed, fertilizer, and pesticides so he can offer quality crops to his clients.

Ulises is a family man with high hopes for giving all the best to his children, which drives him to work hard day after day and to want to grow his business, planting more and selling more.
