Douglas Alberto
Douglas Alberto is thirty-five years old and lives with his life partner and three children in their own house. He earns his living growing corn. From a very young age he has worked in agriculture and he has a lot of experience which helps him to improve day by day in his work and to obtain good harvests. The crop land is good for sowing and has fertile soil. He sells everything he produces in the outskirts of the community and already has many customers since people prefer to buy from him because he sells everything they need, at accessible prices and provides good customer service.

Douglas is an enterprising and determined man and is always motivated to move forward. For him the most important thing is his family, for which he fights to succeed.  

During the last crop season he incurred some losses and he lost income. For this reason during this harvest he wants to make the most of it and increase production but he needs capital and for this reason he is asking INTEGRAL for a loan which will allow him to buy corn seeds, insecticide, herbicide, manure etc. Douglas Alberto has good payment references and promises that he will be able to pay back the debt and has faith that he will be able to provide his family with good living conditions.
