A loan of $350 helped to buy farming supplies.

Amilcar's story

Amílcar is 34 years old and lives with his wife and children. He is a farmer and raises the basic grains; corn and beans. He also has a small plot where he raises loroco. He does this every year; plants the seeds, harvests the crop, sells part of it and uses the rest for personal consumption. This is how he earns a living and it’s important to mention that this is his main source of income.

Amílcar is known for being a hardworking, honest, and responsible man. Many people provide him with good references and they trust in the products he sells. He decided to approach INTEGRAL to ask for a loan that will allow him to buy supplies, such as seeds, insecticides, compost, pesticides, and other things. In this way he can continue cultivating the land to harvest the basic grains that allow him to provide the daily bread for his home. He has faith in God almighty that he will obtain good results and that he will be able to achieve his dream of improving his family’s quality of life.
