A loan of $400 helped to buy agriculture supplies.

Antolín Arturo's story

Antolín Arturo, 51 years old, lives alone in his own home. He has to work hard to provide food for himself. He has worked in agriculture his entire life, and it is also worth mentioning that this is his main source of income. He is a tireless man who, despite his age, doesn't stop working hard and hoping for a different quality of life. Year after year, he asks God to help him with the new harvest since agriculture is very vulnerable to climate change. In this case, the harvest often does not withstand these changes and the desired harvest is not achieved. This is what happened to the previous harvest since the rains didn't allow for an abundant harvest. This situation kept Antolín from staying caught up with his loan, so it was canceled. Therefore, he is now requesting refinancing through INTEGRAL so he can buy the necessary supplies for the new harvest, which he hopes will be abundant. This will allow him to pay his debt and improve his economic conditions.
