Cecilio's story

Cecilio lives with his wife and their six children in the northern area of the country. He works in agriculture, which is sector that's developing the most in the area. Most of these farmers sell their goods to local stockpile centers, as is the case for Cecilio. He has decided to increase his income by extending the area of the his cultivated land for which he needs a loan of 500,000 Costa Rican Colóns. With this, he will buy corn seeds and the supplies for the growth of his product. He is pleased with the ease through which he acquired funding, and he is grateful for this opportunity.
