Donald's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy supplies for potato farming.
Donald is 37 years old and married. He lives with his wife and children, who are his first priority. With this loan, he intends to purchase high-quality potato seeds that properly adapt to the area's soil conditions and climate, and that have the good characteristic of producing an adequate harvest and final product yield. He will also buy some fertilizers to apply to the potato plants, and carry out some cultural projects such as soil conservation. The soil conservation project will be done by creating level canals so that the rain can't wash through, mainly in the most sloped areas. With these new work practices, he hopes to achieve his goal of having a healthier plantation with more fertile soil, and therefore, a better harvest. With this purchase of the necessary products, he will have a higher quality product for the consumer. This is the first loan he has received from Fudecosur. He has never had other loans from state banks, but Fudecosur has given him the loan more easily and at a lower interest rate.
