Fermín Del Carmen's story

Fermín del Carmen is 65 years old. He lives in the house he owns with his son. He has grown corn and beans for several years. He is an incredible man, who despite his advaned years doesn't tire of working. Day after day he gets up very early to work on his crops to have an abundant harvest. Fermín is a man who has worked hard his whole life. This has made him the beneficiary of a pension. It isn't alot but what he gets helps his finances. With the income he receives from the farming he is able to cover the rests of his necesities and help his family. It is worth mentioning that he is a working man who is responsible and dedicated to what he does. Since planting time is already here, he has decided to ask for this loan from INTEGRAL. He doesn't have the financial resources to do it on his own. He wants to invest in buying agricultural materials such as: fertilizer, insecticides and seeds. He hopes to have favorable results that will allow him to achieve his dream: to keep supporting his home and doing what he likes so much.
