A loan of $150 helped to buy an ecological energy-saver lamp.


Jose Santos's story

José Santos, 31 years old, lives with his life partner and his children in his own house. He has been engaged in traditional fishing and agriculture for many years now. He is an enterprising, honest, and very determined man. He wants a better future for him and his family, which is fundamental and what drives him to look for better opportunities in life. He lives in a rural zone of the country and in his home he does not have electricity. These days, electricity in the home is a basic necessity, which permits them to obtain a better quality of life.

José is fully aware that it is very indispensable, and therefore he decided to apply to INTEGRAL for a loan that allows him to buy an ecological energy-saver lamp that provides him with an efficient solution for his environment. It costs less and furthermore, with auto-renewable energy, it is exactly what he needs for his home to offer better living conditions. José Santos is already appreciative of the help he is about to receive and assures you that he will be able to pay off the debt and at the same time he is confident in that God will offer his family a full life.
