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

A loan helped to buy fertilizers, compost, and necessary supplies for improvement and care of his coffee crop.

Cesar's story

Cesar wishes to receive a loan again. He is 33 years old, married, and lives with his wife, who is his first priority.

He wants the loan to buy supplies, fertilizers, and compost needed for improvement of his coffee crop. With this investment, he intends to increase his harvest and to be able to sell it at a better price, increasing his profits. He hopes that the investment will offer his family a better quality of life and greater economic stability. He hopes to be able to continue growing as a person and as a micro-entrepreneur.

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