Gerardo Antonio's story

Gerardo is 28 years old. He lives in his own home with his wife and daughter. He has been dedicated to agriculture for many years. Each year he sows the basics like corn, beans and sorghum. He repeats this year after year and it is his main source of income. This is how he earns a living and supports his family.

His dream is to improve his quality of life and that of his family, since they live in very poor conditions and he wants to give them something different. This motivates him to work with more enthusiasm since it is the only way to give his family what they desire.

For these reasons, he decided to go to the institution, INTEGRAL, to request a loan. It will allow him to invest in agricultural supplies like seeds, fertilizers, insecticides and others. He feels that they are necessary to cultivate the land, and to continue supporting his family. He hopes to achieve his goal of giving his family the better quality of life that they deserve.
