Oscar Armando's story

Oscar is 50 years old and lives in his own home, with his life partner and children. He has been working in agriculture for many years. Every year he harvests the main bulk grains of his growing zone, like corn, beans and sorghum. Agriculture is his main source of income and it is the way that he earns a living and supports his family.

His dream is to improve his standard of living and that of his family. They live in very humble conditions and he wants to give them something better. This motivates him to work with more enthusiasm, because with a lot of effort and work he will be able to provide for his family in the way that he so desires. It is for this reason that he decided to approach Integral to apply for this loan, which allows him to invest in agricultural supplies like manure, insecticides, etc. These are necessary for cultivating the earth and to continue supporting his family.
