Jose Alfredo's story

Jose Alfredo is 18 years old, single, and lives with his parents who are his top priority. This loan will be used to buy supplies, composts, and fertilizers that are needed to improve and increase the productivity of his coffee crops. He is also in the process of paying for labor to help with maintaining his crops. Jose Alfredo hopes this investment will provide his family a better quality of life and greater financial stability. He also wants to continue growing as a person and as a small entrepreneur.

This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. Jose Alfredo has not received any other loans from the state banks. FUDECOSUR is offering this loan with better terms and a lower interest rate.
