Jose Julian's story

Jose Julian, 39 years old, lives with his common-law wife and their children in their own house. He works growing sweetcorn, and has spent many years working in agriculture. Since he was very little, his father taught him the profession and now he has acquired a good deal of experience that allows him to obtain better harvests to sell. The land that he cultivates is located in a zone of high agricultural potential, and is close to where he lives. All of the sweetcorn that he produces he sells in the surrounding communities. He has many steady customers that prefer him to other growers because he always fills their needs with high-quality products at reasonable prices, in addition to his good service. Jose is a man who is selfless in his work, energetic, and above all motivated to find new opportunities that allow him to be successful. He wants to increase his production but he needs the capital necessary to do so, for this reason he is asking for a loan from INTEGRAL that will allow him to buy seedcorn, fertilizer, insecticide, tools, etc. Jose Julian has good references and is very thankful for the help. He is sure he will be able to pay back the debt and at the same time offer his family a better quality of life.
