Marcelino's story

Señor Marcelino is 29 years old. He lives with his wife Ayde. Their home is located in Monteagudo, in Fernandez canton, in the community of El Puente. Their principal activities are raising and selling the local breed of pigs, and also producing and selling Amarillo Blando (soft yellow) corn. He also produces and sells hot peppers. He sells part of his agricultural production and with the rest he feeds his pigs and also his family. Marcelino has two young children, one of whom is studying in school. It is for this reason that they work hard to cover the educational expenses of their son, so that he can continue his schooling until he becomes a professional, and to have a better life. He needs the loan to plant corn that will be destined for feeding his pigs. With this they will improve the diet of their pigs, which will mean income that will help them cover the studies of their son.
