He wants the loan for his bean crops. The idea is to prepare the land for planting the beans and to give the crop adequate maintenance. This is so that they will be ready to harvest. Then he will be able to sell them and get better earnings.

In the future he hopes to give his family a better quality of life and greater economic stability. He also hopes to be able to continue growing as a person and, above all, as a producer.
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.
