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

A loan helped to buy broiler chickens for which he can leverage his enclosures and increase his profits.

Luis David's story

Luis David is 24 years old, is single and lives with his parents who are his top priority. He wants the loan to purchase broiler chickens and construction materials for the repair of his enclosures and thus increase his sales and generate more profits. He hopes that this investment will give his family a better quality of life and greater economic stability, and to be able to continue growing as a person and as a micro-entrepreneur. This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not had other loans at state banks before, but FUDECOSUR has offered him the loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
