Roberto's story

Roberto lives in his own home with his wife and daughter. He cultivates corn and beans and has worked in agriculture for several years. He has gained valuable experience that allows him to obtain the best harvests. He sells throughout the community and has built up a large clientele who prefer his produce because everything he sells is top quality, at accessible prices and with good service. Roberto is an active man, dedicated to his work, and has a great desire to get ahead. He is always looking for opportunities to succeed. He plans to work earnestly and constantly in order to succeed. In his most recent harvests he had many problems and losses, and he wants to recuperate. He will make a new investment which will allow him to increase his production. For this reason, he is requesting a loan from Integral which will allow him to buy seeds, manure, insecticides, tools, fertilizers, etc. and to improve his farmland, shown in the photograph. The land in the area where he lives is very stony and coarse. With this investment, he will be able to continue with his crops in order to give his family greater economic stability.
