A loan of $700 helped to buy compost, seeds, fertilizers, herbicides, etc., and to improve the land.


Felipe Santiago's story

Felipe, who is 56 years old, has worked in agriculture for a number of years. He plants the principal basic grains, corn, beans, and sorghum. He sells his products to the various agencies that buy and sell basic grains. With the earnings that he obtains, he manages to cover some household expenses. He lives in his own house with his wife and their five children. Don Felipe is applying to INTEGRAL for a loan to be able to buy compost, seeds, fertilizers, herbicides, etc., and to improve the land where he plants, since in the place where he lives the land is rustic and stony, and thus be able to continue with his planting and give his family better economic stability.
