A loan of $600 helped to buy seeds for corn and beans, insecticides, and herbicides.

Jose Francisco's story

José Francisco, who is 25 years old, now lives with his grandparents, and his neighbors provide very good references for him. He is a very entrepreneurial person who likes to work, has very good principles, and who, in spite of his relative youth, already has 10 years of experience in agriculture, specifically in planting basic grains in an agricultural zone especially located on hillsides and flat plains ideal for planting. He also has monthly income since he does masonry work, and thus he is a [loan] client with very good backing. He is applying to INTEGRAL for a loan to buy supplies -- seeds for corn and beans, insecticides, herbicides, etc. -- which will allow him to optimize the quality of his harvest and assure that he will be able to pay the amount of the loan agreed upon. José Francisco trusts that he will give his family a better quality of life.
