Damaso Adan
Dámaso Adán, 65, lives with his life partner and his daughter. He makes a living growing bananas and selling corn and cattle. He has 15 years of experience working in agriculture, which allows him to get the best harvests. His cropland, located in an agricultural area, has fertile soil that is suitable for planting.

He sells his crop on the outskirts of the community, and he has acquired a lot of customers who prefer him for the quality of his product, good prices, and above all his excellent service. Dámaso is an enterprising, likable, and helpful person who is always waiting for new opportunities for success.

In the last planting season he had some losses because of the weather, and he wants to recover. This is why he's asking Integral for a loan to buy corn seed, bananas, herbicide, fertilizer, and other supplies.

Dámaso Adán has a good payment record and is very responsible. He's certain he'll be able to pay back the debt and trusts he'll give his family a better quality of life.
