He now has two calves and wants to buy more to put his land to maximum use. He’s thinking about increasing the size of his herd so that in time he can sell the animals at a very good price and generate well-being for his family while at the same time continuing to buy more animals so he can improve himself.
This is the first loan he’s gotten from Fudecosur. He’s had no previous loans from state banks and Fudecosur has offered the best terms and a much lower interest rate.
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.
