Carlos's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase dual-purpose cows in order to make the most of his land.

Carlos's story

Carlos wants to acquire a loan once again. He is 50 years old. He is married and lives with his wife, who is his greatest priority.

He wants the loan for the purchase of dual-purpose cows in order to increase his profits through the sale of the products they can give and, at the same time, make the most of his land by increasing the number of animals he has. He hopes that this investment gives his family a better quality of life and greater financial stability. He also hopes to be able to continue growing as a person and as a small business owner.

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