Dinia Maria's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy the supplies and groceries necessary to stock her grocery store with a wider variety of products for her customers.

Dinia Maria's story

Dinia Maria is 36 years old and married. She lives with her husband and child. She needs a loan to buy supplies and groceries that she needs for her grocery store. The coffee harvest season is coming which increases sales at her store, so she wants to stock her store and offer a wider variety of products to her customers. She has been working on the development of business for several years and so she has the necessary experience to use the loan productively.

She hopes that this investment will bring her family a better quality of life and better financial stability, and she hopes that she can continue to grow and a person and as a microentrepreneur. This is her first loan from FUDECOSUR. She has not received any loans from national banks before, but FUDECOSUR provided her a loan that was easier to get and at a much lower interest rate.
