A loan of $350 helped to buy agricultural supplies such as seeds, manure, fertilizer, pesticides and others.


Simon Garcia's story

Simon is 45 years old and lives together with his wife and children. He says that he is known among his neighbors for having a strong entrepreneurial spirit and for always being responsible for providing his family with bread each day. Simon says that his neighbors admire him for these qualities.

In spite of life’s challenges, Simon says he has always worked and been responsible for his wife and children. He works in agriculture growing the basic grains of the region, such as corn and beans. He pays for his household expenses from the proceeds of his harvests.

Simon would like to continue growing and selling his crops, and it is for this reason that he approached INTEGRAL to request this loan to buy agricultural supplies such as seeds, manure, fertilizer, and others. He says he hopes to receive this help and also that he expects to pay off the loan early.
