Candelario's story

Candelario, 61, lives with his wife and children. He makes a living cultivating corn and beans. He has worked in agriculture for more than 27 years, so he has plenty of experience in this field. He is very well-known in his area and he has a good clientele because he obtains the best harvests. Therefore, he sells a top quality product at accessible prices, and his service is unbeatable. Candelario is characterized by his great kindness. He is an enterprising man who is eager to succeed. He would like to increase his production, but he needs support, so he has applied for a loan from INTEGRAL. This will allow him to buy seeds, manure, and fertilizer and to improve his land, which is shown in the photo, so that he can continue with his harvests. He believes that he will be able to pay back his debt, and at the same time he will be able to give his family a full life.
