A loan of $325 helped to buy fertilizer to fertilize his land.


Jose Medardo's story

José is 52 years old and lives in his own house with his life partner and children. He has been a farmer for many years. He grows basic grains such as rice, beans and corn. Each year he repeats this activity in the way that he has learned, in order to earn a living. He is a hardworking, responsible and enterprising person. He lives in humble conditions with his family. His living situation does not discourage him. It gives him the energy to continue to struggle for a better life. He works really hard to bring bread each day to his home, as he doesn’t have any other source of income. This is why he is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL. He will use the money to buy fertilizer to fertilize his land. This is the time he plants his crops. With faith in God and with his work he hopes to have an abundant harvest of which he will sell a part and keep the rest for his family’s consumption. He hopes to reach his dream of providing a better quality of life for his family.
