Celestino's story

Celestino is a 57-year-old married man with a close-knit family. He lives with his wife and their 2 children in a house made of rustic material (stone and mud). They live in the small village of Miraflores, district of Santo Tomás, province of Cutervo, in the Cajamarca region in the northern mountains of Perú. The people there make a living in agriculture (coffee, yucas, fruits) and raising and trading young animals such as hens, ducks, turkeys, and guinea pigs. Celestino makes a living in agriculture, primarily in the cultivation of coffee trees. He has 7 years of experience, and has good personal and professional references in his district. The loan will be used to buy organic fertilizers and other fertilizers to maintain his plot of coffee that is located near his home. With this, he will have a more productive harvest to offer the middlemen in his district, which will have a positive effect on his income, improving his quality of life.
