Rafael's story

Rafael, 26, lives with his life partner and son in a rented house. He grows corn, sells watermelon, and works as a day laborer to meet his household expenses. Years of labor have provided him with valuable experience to achieve the best harvests and good profits. His land is located in a farming area close to his house. He does business in all the surrounding areas and has many loyal customers because he always offers good service and the items they need at affordable prices.

Rafael is dedicated to his work, energetic, and anxious to make his life better. He works very hard because he knows that this is the only way to achieve success. He wants to increase production to meet higher demand and is applying to INTEGRAL for a loan to buy corn seed, watermelon, insecticide, and tools. Rafael has good credit references and is certain he will be able to repay his loan. At the same time, he hopes to earn more income for his family.
