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

A loan helped to purchase supplies (fertilizers and soil amendments) necessary to improve his coffee crop.

Alexander's story

Alexander is 43 years old, in a common-law marriage, and lives with his spouse and children. He wants this loan to purchase supplies (fertilizers and soil amendments) necessary for improvements and the increase of his coffee crop's production. He has worked at this business for some years and, with it, he brings the daily sustenance to his home.

Hopes that this investment will offer his family a better quality of life and greater financial stability and to be able to continue growing as a person and a micro-entrepreneur.

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