A loan of $600 helped to buy farming supplies like seeds, manure, fertilizer, and pesticide, etc.


Jose Apolinario's story

José, age 40, lives with his family, his wife, and his children. He is a very enterprising man. He has always been known for being the one who is mainly responsible for his household’s daily bread.

His neighbors admire him for his virtues. In spite of life’s adversities, he has always worked, and he has been responsible for his wife and children.

José is a farmer. He grows the main basic grains in the area like corn and beans. That is how he covers the necessities for his household.

José wishes to continue growing and selling. That is why he approached INTEGRAL to request a loan. He will use the loan to buy seeds, manure, fertilizer, and pesticide, etc. He wishes to have the help. He leaves it clear in advance that he hopes to get out of debt earlier than anticipated.
