A loan helped to buy tools.

Marcos's story

Marcos is 35 years old, married, and lives with his wife and children who are his top priority. With his loan he plans to buy tools and equipment for constructing homes and commercial properties, which will facilitate completion of these jobs. Marcos will be able to improve the quality of designs and types of finishes, to take advantage of knowledge gained during years on the job, and as such be able to have more income to continue investing in the purchase of tools and other equipment. He can continue offering better service every day, as well as increase the amount and quality of business. With this purchase he plans to do more construction, and with updated plans and better variety he can fulfill orders within a better time frame. This is the first loan Marco has received from FUDECOSUR. He has never had any state bank loans before, but FUDECOSUR has offered him the loan with the most facilities and the lowest interest rate.
