Bernardo
Bernardo N. C. is 48 years old, he is married and has two children who are his greatest priority. One is 17 and the other is 12. He wants the credit to buy cattle. His idea is to have cattle for a double purpose (meat and milk). He wants to keep the cattle adequately so he can obtain the highest possible earnings when it's sold. This is not the first time he asks for a loan from FUDECOSUR and he is very happy with the conditions they've given him. Mr. Bernardo has 8 hectares of pasture of different kinds (brisanta, gamalote, toledo and others), all good for breeding and fattening cattle. In the future he hopes to offer his family a better quality of life and more financial stability, as well as being able to grow both as a person and as a cattle breeder.

Additional Information

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.
