Celso's story

Celso A. is 54 years old and is married to Concepcion Alvarez. They have six children, but only two still depend on them. They’ve lived in Caucara for 20 years, raising corn and buying and selling basic grains, soft drinks, and general groceries. Their general store is located within their home and they will use the money from this loan to buy soft drinks, juices, rice, beans, sugar, milk, soups, pasta, wheat and corn flour, churros, lard, cooking oil, candles, bread, eggs, cakes, salt, condiments, and bathroom tissue. [Celso’s] greatest desire is that this year’s harvest will be better than those of previous years.
