Crespín says that not forming a family and seeing their children grow was a very sad thing. But despite that they continue forward and try to find the way to live happily just the two of them. He says that he has a good wife that supports him in everything and thanks to that support he’s learned to live life to the fullest.

Secundino’s a very hardworking man who despite the bad times shared with his wife has striven to get ahead a be able to live the best way possible. This is how on his own initiative he opened a small store that he’s now had for 7 years. It’s home-based and earns income to support him and his wife.

He also earns income working in agriculture where he’s been cultivating the soil for 30 years. When he opened the store he had no experience but with his wife’s support who manages the resources and is the only member of his family they support each other mutually to get ahead.

The money will be used to buy stock merchandise for the store such as dairy products, bread, sodas, basic grains, rice, beans, snacks and more. This is what the money Fundación Campo has entrusted to them will be used for. It will improve the business for he will be able to offer more products to customers and this will lead to higher household income. The need has been met because his main goal was to stock the store and continue forward with his business.

What he wants most is to have at least one son to share happy moment with though he sees this as being difficult but he trusts that God will help him in his business. He plans to continue investing to become one of the best stocked stores in the canton he live in to be able to better serve his customers.
