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

A loan helped to buy seedlings, fertilizers, compost, and other needed supplies to maintain his coffee crops.

Alexander's story

Alexander wants to acquire another loan. He is 44 years old, in a common-law relationship, and lives with his wife and children who are his highest priority. This loan will be used to buy coffee seedlings, fertilizers, compost, and other needed supplies to maintain and grow his coffee crops. Alexander has years of experience in developing his business and this investment will be a great help as he continues his work. He hopes this investment will provide his family a better quality of life and greater financial stability. In addition, he hopes to keep growing as a person and as a small entrepreneur.

This is the second loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. Alexander has not had any other loans from the state banks. FUDECOSUR is providing this loan with better terms and a lower interest rate.
