A loan of $700 helped to buy seeds and farm supplies.

José Isidro's story

José Isidro lives in his house with his family unit composed of his spouse and children. He’s worked growing corn and beans for many years. Sometimes he also works harvesting coffee since he’s a hardworking man who looks for any honest way to earn income. His main source of income is agriculture like all farmers. He cultivates the land every year and after taking in his harvest sells part of it. In this way he’s able to support his family economically since he’s the only one who contributes economically to the home. It’s worth mentioning that agriculture isn’t a full-time job. Corn and bean crops are seasonal and are only harvested once a year. This causes all farmers to strive the most they can to produce abundant harvests. José is one of them and because the planting season has begun already he’s decided to ask INTEGRAL for a loan to buy manure, insecticide and seeds because he does not have means of his own to do so. He is a man with credit experience and is very grateful to this institution for the help they provided him previously.
