A loan of $800 helped to buy agricultural supplies and a cow.

Maria Isabel's story

María lives in her own house with her family, made up of her life partner and her children. She makes a living in agriculture, mainly growing corn. She does this job along with her husband and this way they support their household.

She's an incredible woman known for being hardworking, charismatic, and responsible. She has made a living in agriculture for a long time, so she's very familiar with how to do this job. She does it every year, selling part of her harvest and leaving the rest for home consumption. This way she's getting her family ahead little by little and providing them with basic food. She and her family live in very humble conditions. This makes her work harder to continue striving for a different future.

This is why she's asking Integral for a loan to buy seeds to plant, fertilizer, insecticide, and other agricultural supplies. She also wants to buy a cow and benefit from selling the milk at a good price.

This is how she earns a living and supports her household every day. She hopes that this year's harvest is good and that she manages to realize her dream.
