Elba Jalec's story

Elba, 39, lives in a humble house together with her joyful family. She is a woman with many aspirations and a strong will to improve. She is attentive, kind and responsible and she focuses in what she does best: giving her family happiness and joy.

Elba grows corn, beans and a type of plum called “jocote”. She has been doing this for some time now and this is how she makes a living. God has always provided for her and with her effort, she makes sure her children have everything they need and they recognize what she does for them.

Elba wants to buy agricultural supplies for the upcoming seasons and that is why she is requesting a loan to INTEGRAL in order to buy seeds, compost and fertilizers among other things. She hopes to receive the loan since she has no additional sources of income and she is responsible with the debts she acquires. The only thing she wants is that her children continue to have a good life and that they have everything they need.
