Celestino
Celestino is 50 years old, and married to Dominga, with whom he has two children, who are already young adults. They live in their own house that Celestino constructed with effort, located in a rural district.

At his age he is considered an expert and dynamic man; he has been farming since he was 18. Currently he grows potatoes, peas, corn and gladiolus flowers on his farmland. He likes farmwork because all the members of his family carry out the work, though he recognizes that it is demanding, as he must watch over all his crops so that they are not lost because of pests or adverse weather conditions.

This way he feels his dedication is rewarded during harvest time, as he harvests all his production and sells it at the wholesale market in the city, at stable prices.

He also raises bees which he also considers a hobby. He obtains extra income through the sale of honey. The seasons for planting potatoes, peas and corn have arrived, and he needs your support to continue toward his goals. He belongs to the "Lindo Amanecer de Cumutay" communal bank, and this will be his 12th loan with MFP.

He is very grateful to all all the people who have made the loan possible. He will use the 2000 soles to purchase three bags of pea seeds, and others of organic fertilizer.

Celestino de 50 años, está casado con Dominga con quien tiene 2 hijos que ya son jóvenes. Ellos viven en su casa propia que Celestino construyó con esfuerzo y se ubica en un distrito rural
A su edad se considera un hombre experto y dinámico; se dedica a la agricultura desde los 18 años. En la actualidad siembra papa, arvejas, maíz y flores de gladiolos en sus terrenos de cultivos. Le gusta mucho la labor de campo porque la realizan todos los miembros de su familia, aunque reconoce que la labor es sacrificada ya que debe vigilar todos sus cultivos, para que no se pierdan por las plagas o los factores climáticos adversos, 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 a regulares precios.
Así también se dedica a la crianza de abejas, que también considera como un pasatiempo. Y obtiene ingresos extras por la venta de la miel.
Las temporadas de siembras de papas, arvejas, y maíz llegaron. Necesita de su apoyo para continuar con sus metas. Él pertenece al banco comunal “Lindo amanecer de Cumutay” y este sería su crédito número 12 con MFP, está muy agradecido con todas las personas que hicieron posible el crédito.
Él invertirá los 2000 soles en la compra de 3 bolsas de semillas de arvejas y otras de fertilizantes orgánicos.
