Jose Celestino's story

Jose Celestino is a small agricultural producer devoted to the cultivation of rainfed rice. He carries out this work along with his son, and his wife takes care of their three younger children who attend fourth through sixth grade in primary school. Every day, Jose goes to his planting area very early. He is a member of the agricultural cooperative COPACSELES, where he would take part in the construction of a rice threshing machine, which would allow him to obtain a better wage from his crops, making a dream close to reality. He seeks this loan so that as a member of this group he can have access to the thresher.
