Maria De Los Angeles's story

Maria de Los Angeles is 69 years old, married, and lives with her husband. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy coffee seedings so that she can take advantage of her land and help improve her finances. She hopes this investment will provide her family a better quality of life and greater financial stability. In addition, she hopes to continue growing as a person and as a small entrepreneur.

This is the first loan Maria de Los Angeles has received from FUDECOSUR. She has not had any other loans from the state banks. FUDECOSUR is providing this loan with better terms and a lower interest rate.
