Oscar Atilio's story

Oscar, age 37, lives at home on his own property with his wife and children. For many years, he's been in the business of growing staple crops, specifically, corn, beans, and sorghum, though he also owns a small store and a tailor shop. This allows him to put food on the table every day in his home. Through raising his crops he is able to go on sustaining his family year after year. Oscar is a very hardworking man of whom many people speak highly, selling part of his crop each season to bring in the income he needs to cover various household expenses.

His hope is to invest a little more in his agricultural work to achieve a larger crop of staples that will allow him to improve his sales and his income. That's why he decided to get involved with INTEGRAL; to buy some agriculture materials, such as manure, seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, etc, and invest in a better crop and realize his goal of improving his and his family's living conditions. He puts his trust in God and in his hard work to achieve success.
