A loan of $400 helped to buy pest control, fertilizers, seeds and other supplies to improve his land.

Jorge Alberto's story

Jorge, 54, is very friendly and a hard worker. He lives with his family in his own home. He works very hard in his own plot of land where he grows corn and sorghum. His produce is of very high quality and he sells it in different markets that are close to his home.

Jorge is asking for a loan from INTEGRAL in order to have the money needed to invest in the purchase of agricultural supplies such as pest controls, fertilizers and seeds, amongst other things, needed for sowing his crops. These products will also improve his land which is shown in the photograph. He is eager to increase his sales so that he can earn a higher income and give his family better economic stability.
