A loan helped to buy supplies.

Jesus's story

Jesús is a hardworking man. He is 79 years old and married, and he lives with his wife and son. He is applying for this loan to buy supplies, such as fumigation and weed-killers. This will help him to maintain his coffee crops in good condition. This farmer has put in plenty of effort and sacrifice to get his project underway and provide for his family. Thanks to his dedication, he has received good feedback. His family depends on this business in order to move forward, which is why he is applying for this loan. This is his first loan with FUDECOSUR. He does not have any other loans in state-run banks, but FUDECOSUR provided him with a loan with much better terms and a lower interest rate.
