A loan of $300 helped to repair his home.


Carlos Armando's story

50-year-old Carlos lives together with his life partner. They both work on a farm raising chickens. They have been working at the same place for more than five years and Carlos has very good references from his work colleagues and his boss as he is a hard-working, responsible, punctual person who always gives his very best.

Carlos is requesting a loan from Integral as he would like to improve the condition of his home. He needs to carry out a number of repairs including replacing the roof and improving the walls and flooring. This is essential for Carlos as the winter is approaching and he would like to have a home in which he can shelter from the inclement weather and live more safely and securely with his wife.
