Cleofe Casilda's story

Cleofe is 34 years old and lives in a home of her own along with her husband and son. She is a farmer and raises basic grains such as corn and beans. When the harvest is finished, she sells part of the crops and reserves some for personal consumption in her home. She is very enterprising and admirable and to her the most important thing in life is to earn her daily bread in a dignified manner, with her own hands. She has worked as a farmer all her life and this is how she has managed to survive because she doesn’t have another source of income.

As an entrepreneurial and visionary woman she has decided to approach this institution, now that the planting season is approaching and she wants to be prepared. She is asking INTEGRAL for a loan so she can buy seeds, insecticides, compost, and other things so she can start planting as soon as possible and be able to harvest the fruits of her labor. She is confident that she will have an abundant harvest which will allow her to improve her and her family’s quality of life.
