A loan of $400 helped to buy supplies for growing coffee.

Damaris's story

Damaris is 38 years old, married, and lives with her husband and children. She plans to use her loan to buy supplies for her coffee plantation. She has a plot of land which is suitable for growing coffee in good conditions. What she plans to do is apply a good quantity of fertilizer so that she will obtain better harvests this year. She would like to make the income she needs to get ahead in life and improve her family's well-being.

This is Damaris' first loan from FUDECOSUR. She has not received previous loans from state banks but FUDECOSUR gave her this loan with better repayment terms and a much lower interest rate.
