A loan of $500 helped buy some agriculture materials, such as manure, seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, etc.


Elida Maribel's story

Elida, age 30, lives in her own home with her husband and children. Her occupation is growing staple crops, like corn and beans, which she's been doing for a long time and allows her to keep her family fed. An enterprising, hardworking, and responsible woman, she has always worked in agriculture and so she knows the business very well. Every year, she keeps up this business by selling a part of her harvest and keeping the rest for sustenance. This is how she keeps moving ahead, little by little, and providing for her family's basic needs. She decided to approach INTEGRAL about a loan in order to invest in some agricultural materials, like seeds, fertilizers, insecticides, etc. She hopes that this year the harvest will be successful and that she will realize her dreams.
