A loan of $550 helped buy seeds, fertilizer, manure, insecticides etc. and improve her land.


Maricela's story

40-year old Maricela lives with her husband and children. She grows maize and beans. Because she has been a farmer for many years, she has lots of experience and is well known in the area. She has many good customers because she has high quality produce which she sells for a fair price.

The service Maricela provides is unequalled, and she is known for her friendliness. She is an enterprising woman with a great desire to get ahead. She wishes to expand production but needs some capital to do so. She has approached INTEGRAL for a loan to buy seeds, fertilizer, manure, insecticides etc. so she can improve the land where she wishes to grow her crops.

Maricela has references that state she is of good character, responsible, and will make her repayments. She herself trusts that she will be able to pay off her debt and at the same time provide her family with a good life.
