Juán Miguel's story
Juan Miguel is 21 years old and married. He lives with his wife and daughter, and they are his greatest priority. He plans to use the loan to buy good seeds that adapt well to the area. He will also buy fertilizers and other products to use at planting time. This way there will be good germination. Additionally, he will pay for the labor to apply the products and for caring for the plants once they start growing. This way he will be sure to do a good job. He intends to take advantage, for this crop, of the good climate and soil conditions in the area. He will also put into practice his several years of experience in managing basic crops. He will also be able to buy the best products and better quality so that his plants grow well and so that they are healthy. He will have an adequate harvest, and in the short term, and important production. He wants to use the income from the harvest that he hopes to get for his family’s well-being, his family’s education, for some family goals, and to continue investing more in the crops. It is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not previously had other loans with state banks. However, FUDECOSUR has provided the loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
