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

A loan helped to buy a nursery and assistance for it.

Jose Antonio's story

Jose Antonio wants to acquire a loan again. He is 50 years old, he is in a common-law union, and he lives with his wife, who is his highest priority.

He wants the loan to buy a nursery, as well as the necessary inputs and fertilizers for planting and caring for his coffee crops. He will use them to make the most of his land and to be able to maintain them in the best way to improve his harvest.

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

This is the fifth loan that he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not had other loans in state banks before, but FUDECOSUR has provided him with the loan with greater facilities and a much lower interest rate.
