It would seem that the join that you already use inside your for-loop
would give you the results you want, precisely because of the join
that's in it. Provided you take off the limit, of course.
Perhaps you want those results DISTINCT ON (consumer_id), but a
for-loop is definitely not the way to do that. Not impossible, just
very inelegant and slow.
If you can't see the forest for the trees,
Cut the trees and you'll see there is no forest.
