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


A loan helped to purchase spare parts, materials, and tools needed to offer better service in his mechanic workshop.


German's story

German is 47 years old. He is married and lives with his wife. He wants a loan for the purchase of spare parts, materials, and tools needed to offer better service in his mechanic workshop. He wants to purchase better-quality products and offer his customers faster service.

He hopes that this investment provides his family with a better quality of life and greater financial stability. He also hopes to be able to continue growing as a person and a small business owner.

This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not had other loans at state banks, but FUDECOSUR has given him the loan with better payment terms and a much lower interest rate.
