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

A loan helped to buy supplies to grow coffee.

Esmeralda's story

Esmeralda wishes to receive another loan. She is 49 years of age, married, and lives with her husband and children who are her greatest priority. She wants the loan to buy supplies, compost, and fertilizer necessary to tend to and to improve her coffee crop.

She hopes that this investment will offer her family a better quality of life, and greater economic stability. She wants to be able to continue growing as a person and as a micro-entrepreneur.

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