Manuel Antonio
Manuel is a man who is very responsible with the obligations of his home, as he has always been characterized by giving the best to his children. He lives with his wife and their children, and he is very hard-working; he has always carried out his work cheerfully and with enthusiasm.

He works in agriculture, and every year he plants the principal crops of the zone, such as corn and beans.

Manuel wants to increase his sales, so he visited the offices of Integral in order to request a loan that will allow him to purchase compost, fertilizer, pesticide, and similar items; and to improve the land, which is shown in the photograph.

He hopes to have the help that he has requested, as he has no other income; this way he will continue providing for his home without any limitations.
