Luis is an enterprising man who is 39 years old, married and lives with his wife. He is requesting a loan with the desire of purchasing supplies like fertilizers. He wants to care for his rice crops with the aim of maintaining them in good condition during their development in order to obtain a good quality product. The only limitation that this gentleman has is the lack of money to continue growing as they depend on this economic activity in order to be able to get ahead. That is why he is making a request for a loan and it is the first loan that he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not had other loans from state banks before but FUDECOSUR has offered him the loan with greater ease 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.
The Foundation for the Development of Southern Communities (FUDECOSUR) is dedicated to economically empowering its clients by providing credit and training programs that help improve living conditions for micro-entrepreneurs and their children across Southern Costa Rica.
