Marvin's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase livestock.

Marvin's story

Marvin wants to get another loan. Marvin is 54 years old, in a common-law marriage, and currently lives with his spouse. He wants the loan to purchase livestock. He hopes to be able to get more milk and cheese to sell to the businesses and neighbors and to fatten the calves and sell them with the ideal weight and, so, to have more income. He hopes in the future to offer his family a better quality of life and greater financial stability, and to be able to continue growing.

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