Cristino Eduardo's story

Cristino Eduardo is 40 years old. He lives in a home he owns with his wife and children. With his father, he has grown basic grains and raised cattle for many years. He does these things year after year to earn the daily bread for his home. These activities are what allows him to cover the basic necessities in his home and Cristino does them with much hard work and dedication. He is a hardworking, honest and responsible man. He lives in very humble conditions together with his family and that is what motivates him to work hard to give his family the best. That is the only way to change the reality they find themselves in. Cristino knows that with a little help to invest in his crops and in the cattle raising, he will be able to generate more income, which will help him change his family's future. That is why he approached INTEGRAL, to ask for a loan to invest in buying cattle and materials for his crops, such as pesticides, fertilizer, seeds, etc. These are his only sources of income and he hopes that these crops will be better than in previous years so he can have good income for his family.
