Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos Alberto, 42 years old, lives with his life partner and their three children. He grows corn, beans, and sugar cane. He has been a farmer for several years and has gained valuable experience that allows him to produce better harvests. His fields are in an agricultural area near his home. He sells his harvests throughout the region and has many customers who come to him because he offers high-quality produce, affordable prices, and good service. Carlos is an active man who works hard and is determined to succeed. He is always looking for good opportunities and hopes that a new investment will help him increase his yields. He is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL that will allow him to buy seed corn, beans, fertilizer, pesticides, tools, etc. Carlos has good financial references and is confident that he will be able to pay off his debt and bring his household greater economic security.
