Donaldo, 37, lives in his own house with his life companion and their children. He’s worked in agriculture for many years. He grows basic grains like rice, beans and corn. He repeats this activity each year since it’s the only way he knows to earn a living. He’s a very hardworking, responsible and enterprising man. He works hard to bring daily bread home since he has no other source of income besides agriculture.

Because of this he’s decided to request an INTEGRAL loan to buy manure, fertilizer, pesticide and seeds. In addition, he wants to repair his small parcel of land to earn higher income. With much trust in God and in his work he hopes to obtain an abundant harvest so he can sell part of it and use the rest for home consumption. He hopes to reach his dream of providing his family with better quality of life.
