Cecilio Efraín O. is 46 years old. He lives in San José de los Ríos with is wife, who helps him with the household expenses. They have three children, who are 14, 11, and 6 years old. They study and also help with the agricultural work. His plan for his family is to improve their living conditions. Cecilio has been farming for 30 years. It is through his own initiative that he has been able to establish part of his crops. The biggest difficulty he has is the lack of financing. With the loan he will buy fertilizers and other inputs to apply to his crop so he can sell it at a better price.
