This is his first loan with FUDECOSUR. He has 3 hectares of farmland that are designated for growing coffee. Victor has not had any problems with his farm, but he wants it to grow so that it will continue to be fruitful and productive and can be passed along to his children in the future. He wants his children to continue studying and become professionals, so he is working hard to provide them everything they need to have a good education and be prepared for life.
More information about this loan
FUDECOSUR works in one of the poorest regions of Costa Rica, where microfinance institutions (MFIs) are scarce or have a hard time keeping up with demand for small loans. By providing mostly agricultural loans, FUDECOSUR reaches rural borrowers that many MFIs consider to be too risky. However, this has also made it more difficult for the organization to find stable sources of capital to lend. Kiva's flexible, risk-tolerant capital plays a critical role in helping FUDECOSUR grow its portfolio and support even more borrowers.
