Luis Alberto's story
Luis Alberto R. L. is 49 and married. He lives with his wife and 16 year old son, who are his main priority. Luis wants a loan to buy fertiliser to help him cultivate coffee on his farm. He wants to adequately maintain his coffee cultivation to achieve better quality coffee and in turn better profits when sowing time comes. This is the first time he has sought a loan with FUDECOSUR and he is very content with the facilities that they have. Luis has worked in agriculture for many years. He hopes in the future to give his family a better quality of life and better economic stability, and to continue growing as a person and producer. About FUDECOSUR: The Foundation for the Development of Southern Communities is dedicated to economically empowering its clients by providing credit and capacitating programs to improve living conditions of micro-entrepreneurs and their children across Southern Costa Rica.
