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


A loan helped to buy supplies, fertilizers, and manure in order to provide assistance to his coffee crop.


Guido's story

Guido wants to acquire another loan. He is 79 years old and lives with his wife, who is his greatest priority.

Guido wants a loan to buy supplies, fertilizers, and manure in order to provide assistance to his coffee crop. With this investment he plans to obtain a better quality product and increase his production at the same time. He hopes this investment provides his family a better quality of life and improved financial stability. He also wants to continue growing as a person and a micro entrepreneur.

This is the second loan Guido has received from Fudecosur. Even though he hadn't had prior loans with state banks, Fudecosur is providing him the loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
