A loan helped to buy agricultural inputs to grow coffee.

Esteban's story

Esteban is 24 years old, is single, and lives with his parents—who are his top priority. He plans to use the loan to buy fertilizers and fungicides, and to pay for labor to help him with the tasks involved in growing coffee. He will also buy a few seedlings to replant at the start of the rainy season with the purpose of increasing the density of plants in the area. He will take advantage of the good soil fertility, climate, and other factors that favour coffee cultivation. With these improvements to his crops, he hopes to generate a bit more profit and, thus, improve his family's living conditions. He also hopes to invest a little bit more in his cultivation area and achieve some of his goals. This is the first loan that Esteban has received from FUDECOSUR. He had not had any other loans from state banks before, but FUDECOSUR has granted him a loan with better terms and at a much lower interest rate.
