Celestino
Celestino is 50 years old. He is married to Dominga, with whom he has two children. They live in their own house that Celestino built with a great deal of effort.

He has been farming since he was 18 years old. Currently he grows potatoes, peas, corn and flowers. He really likes farm work, because he does it with all the members of his family.

He acknowledges that the work involves sacrifice, but he must watch over all his crops so that they aren't lost because of pests or bad weather. This way he feels that his dedication is rewarded at harvest time, as he gathers his whole crop and sells it at the wholesale market in his city.

He also raises bees, and activity he considers a hobby, but from which he obtains extra income through the sale of the honey. Now he intends to plant peas, as the rainy season is approaching and he has to make best use of the season.

He belongs to the “Lindo Amanecer de Cumutay” communal bank. This would be his 11th loan with MFP, so he is very grateful to all the people who are making this loan possible.

This time, Celestino will invest in the purchase of three bags of pea seeds.

Celestino tiene 50 años, está casado con Dominga, con quien tiene dos hijos. Ellos viven en su casa propia, la que Celestino construyó con mucho esfuerzo.
Él se dedica a la agricultura desde los 18 años. En la actualidad siembra papa, arvejas, maíz y flores. Le gusta mucho la labor de campo porque la realiza con todos los miembros de su familia. Reconoce que la labor es sacrificada, pues debe vigilar todos sus cultivos para que no se pierdan por las plagas o el mal clima, de esta manera siente que su dedicación es recompensada durante el tiempo de cosecha, pues recoge toda su producción y la vende en el mercado mayorista de su ciudad. También se dedica a la crianza de abejas, actividad que considera como un pasatiempo, pero de la que obtiene ingresos extras por la venta de la miel. Ahora piensa sembrar arvejas, ya que se acercan los días de lluvia y tiene que aprovechar esa temporada.

Él pertenece al banco comunal “Lindo amanecer de Cumutay” y este sería su crédito número 11 con MFP, por lo que está muy agradecido con todas las personas que hacen posible este crédito.
Celestino invertirá, esta vez, en la compra de tres bolsas de semillas de arvejas.
