A loan of $600 helped to buy firewood and clay.


Anonymous's story

The desire to overcome and provide the best for his family are the reasons why each dawn brings him new hopes and dreams to overcome poverty and avoid social unrest that can victimize his family members.

He’s very humble, hardworking, honest and enterprising - all qualities his neighbors comment about. He’s always sought the best for his family and currently works making and selling bricks. This is how he, his son and his in-laws earn their living and they go out to work in order to give their best and set an example for anyone looking at him of the way to earn one’s living honorably.

He wants to invest in materials like clay and firewood needed to manufacture bricks to earn higher profits but does not have enough income of his own to make this dream reality and to increase his profits. Because his products are in high demand, though, he’s approached Integral to request a loan to be able to buy clay and firewood and various other materials that will make it possible for him to continue manufacturing larger amounts of bricks. He hopes that he’s not alone with his wish and that he’ll be able to reach his goal ahead of time.
