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

A loan helped to buy pigs to fatten and make the most of his pigpens.

Antonio's story

Antonio would like a loan once again. He is 60 years old, married, and lives with his wife and son who are his top priorities.

He wants to use the loan to buy pigs to fatten in order to make best use of his pigpens and eventually generate greater income, which will help with financial stability.

He hopes that this investment will provide his family with a better quality of life and greater financial stability, and he hopes to grow as a person and micro-entrepreneur.

This is his sixth loan from FUDECOSUR. He has not previously had other loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered him the loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
