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

A loan helped to buy a calf to fatten to make the most of his land.

Edgardo's story

Edgardo wishes again to acquire a loan. He is 39 years old, married, and lives with his wife and kids who are his main priority.

He wants to loan for the purchase of a calf to fatten to make the most of his land and to be able to sell later at a good price in the market. He hopes the investment brings his family a better quality of life and better economic stability, and to be able to continue growing as a person and microbusiness-owner.

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