This is the first loan that Rodolfo has received from FUDECOSUR. He hasn't received any loans from state banks or cooperatives in the past but FUDECOSUR have offered him this loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate. Rodolfo would like to provide his children with the education they need so that, in the future, they are educated and able to face life more easily than their father.
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.
