A loan of $1,000 helped invest in farming supplies, such as seeds, fertilizer, insecticide, etc.

Rene's story

Rene is 47 years old and lives in a house with his wife and children. He has worked in farming for many years growing staple grains such as corn and beans. He repeats this year after year since it is their main source of income. In this way, he earns a living and provides daily bread to his household.

His dream is to improve his and his family's quality of life. He has always wanted to give them something different. This motivates him to work with greater enthusiasm, since work alone will succeed in giving his family what they desire so much.

It is for these reasons that he has made the decision to become involved with the organization INTEGRAL: to ask for this loan which will allow him to invest in farming supplies such as seeds, fertilizer, and insecticide, among other things. He hopes to accomplish his objective of giving his family what they deserve and being able to attain a better quality of life.
