A loan of $300 helped to buy agricultural supplies such as seed, fertilizer, insecticide, etc.

Johel Antonio's story

Johel, 38, lives with his family in a house that they own. Johel grows vegetables as his main source of income. He has been doing this for a long time, which is how he earns an honest living.

He is a very responsible man, honest and dedicated to his work. He is well known among his neighbors who give good references to his work as much his character. He repeats this activity every year as he is a very humble and poor person with scarce resources so he can do no other type of business or work.

This year, as with years before, he has decided to farm, and since planting season is close he wants to be prepared with the necessary agricultural supplies to harvest basic grains. He is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL because he does not have the financial resources to make the investment. The loan will be invested in the purchase of agricultural supplies such as seed, fertilizer, insecticide, etc. In this way, he hopes to cultivate the basic grains this year so he can bring home the daily bread for his family.
