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

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

Yanori's story

Yanori wants to acquire another loan. She is 30 years old, single, and lives with her children who are her highest priority. This loan will be used to buy coffee seedlings. At the same time, she will invest in fertilizers, composts, and other needed supplies to ensure good development of her crops and increase her production. Yanori hopes this investment will provide her family a better quality of life and greater financial stability. In addition, she wants to keep growing as a person and as a small entrepreneur.

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