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

A loan helped to buy farming supplies for maintaining his coffee crops.

Fermin's story

Fermín wants to acquire another loan. He is 71 years old, married, and lives with his wife who is his highest priority. The loan will be used to buy necessary supplies, such as fertilizers and composts, to maintain and improve his coffee crops so that he can obtain beans of better quality. He hopes this investment will provide his family with a better quality of life and greater financial stability. In addition, Fermín wants to keep growing as a person and as a small entrepreneur.

This is the third loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. Fermín has not had any other loans from the state banks. FUDECOSUR is offering this loan with better terms and a lower interest rate.
