Santos Rafael's story

Santos Rafael lives with his life partner and children. He is a farmer. Specifically, he grows corn and beans. He has been working for many years, which has given him experience in this work, making him one of the best, obtaining the best harvests. The land he cultivates is located in an accessible place very close to his house. He also supplements the household expenses by working as a day laborer. Santos is a man who is dedicated to his work, ready to give everything he has to meet his goals. The most important thing in his life is his family, and in the last few weeks the deterioration of his house has disturbed the tranquility of his home. The house needs renovations and he wants to do them as soon as possible for everyone's safety. He is a committed man and he does not doubt that he will be able to make the changes in the expected time frame and with the success desired. He needs to invest, but he does not have sufficient capital. That is why he is asking for a loan from Integral that will allow him to buy cement, bricks, flooring, tools, etc. Santos Rafael has good payment references and he takes responsibility for paying back the loan. He is grateful for the help, and at the same time he hopes that he will be able to give his family a better quality of life.
