Luis Alfonso's story

Luis Alfonso, 41 years old, lives with his life’s companion and children. He dedicates himself to agriculture, specifically the cultivation of maize and beans. He has spent a great deal of time doing this work and is very proud of all the experience he has gained. He learned the job when he was a young man and always manages to obtain the best crops. The land he cultivates is very accessible to the road and has fertile soil and it is also close to his home. Everything he produces he markets in surrounding communities and he has many customers since people know that everything he sells is high quality and at accessible prices. He also offers good service.

In addition to farming, Luis also works as a bricklayer and that helps pay for household expenses. He is an energetic, responsible and very hardworking man. He is always looking for opportunities that will enable him to succeed. During this planting season he wants to increase production but he needs the capital to invest. Consequently he is applying for a loan from INTEGRAL, which will enable him to buy corn seeds, bean seeds, fertilizer, insecticide, tools, etc.

Luis Alfonso has a good payment history and is certain that he will be able to pay off the debt and at the same time he has faith that he will give his family a fuller life.
