Celsa Dinora
Celsa is 51 years old, married, and has one child. Since she was very young, she has helped her father work in agriculture. Since her family was large and she was the oldest, she married at 19 years old and started working on her own in her husband's company. As the years went on, her husband left her and she took the reins of her home; today, she cultivates 10,500 square meters of corn with the help of her son who is still a minor.

In order to buy agricultural inputs, she travels four kilometers from her house and pays a car to transport her, and in this way is able to make her purchases.

The loan that she is asking for from Fundacion Campo is to purchase fertilizer and other agricultural inputs. With this investment, she seeks to increase her production in order to increase the standard of living of her family. Her wish is that her son completes his studies at a university.
