Julio Cesar's story

Julio, 54, lives in his own home together with his life companion and children. He has worked in agriculture for many years. He cultivates basic grains like rice, beans, and corn. Every year, he repeats this activity, since it is the only way he knows to make a living. He is a very hardworking, responsible, and enterprising person. He lives in very humble conditions with his family, but this does not get their spirits down, but rather gives them the strength to keep fighting for a different quality of life. He works very hard to bring the daily bread home because there is no source of income apart from agriculture. This is why he decided to apply for a loan from INTEGRAL and invest it in the purchase of basic supplies like manure, fertilizer, and pesticides. With a lot of trust in God and in his work, he hopes to have an abundant harvest, part of which he can sell and part of which he can keep to consume. He is very responsible with his payments and has never had an big problems. He is very responsible and on time with his payments. He hopes to achieve his dream of giving his family a better quality of life.
