Marina De Jesus's story

Marina lives with her family in the house she owns. She works growing two basic grains, which are corn and beans. After harvest she sells part of her crops so that she can cover her household's needs, which are greater every day. She is very driven and hardworking. She is an admirable woman because in spite of her age she keeps working and doesn't get tired of doing her work because the most important thing in life to her is earning her daily bread with dignity, her own two hands, and the sweat of her brow so that she can provide the best for her children.

She has been a farmer all her life and that is how she has managed to survive, since she has no other source of income besides farming. Enterprising and visionary woman that she is, she made the decision to approach Integral to request a loan and invest in the purchase of farm supplies like seeds, insecticides, fertilizers, and other items so that she can start the seeding process as soon as possible and harvest the fruits of her effort. She is fully confident that she will obtain a plentiful harvest that will allow her to improve her quality of life as well as her family's.
