A loan helped to pay for agricultural assistance.

Alberto's story

Alberto is 36 years old, married, and has 3 children, of whom 2 study. He works in agriculture with his sibling and his father. They produce corn, beans, taro, tiquisque, and ginger.

With this loan, they want to provide assistance to the entire farm that they have, to fertilize and pay labor costs because the property is large then they cannot do this work quickly on their own, since they are making the most of the rain that is falling. It is approximately 2 hectares and on those, they have planted all these crops. They sell these crops to the association in the area, which is responsible for negotiating with other merchants in bulk.

This is the second loan that he has gotten from FUDECOSUR. He has not had other loans previously with state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered him the loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
