A loan helped to grow corn.

Roy's story

Roy is 32 years old. He is single and lives with his siblings and parents who help each other. With his loan he wants to buy good quality corn seed, fertilizers and other products to use in his cultivation. Also he wants to pay for hand labor to use these products, and to help with the crop once it has grown in order to ensure doing a good job. What he wants is to take advantage of the good climate and soil conditions of this area for this type of crop, and also to put into practice the experience of many years planting basic grains. Also, he will be able to buy the best products of best quality so that his crops develop well and are healthy, as well as to have an adequate harvest and an important production in the short term. The income from the harvest that he expects to get, he wants to use in the well being and education of his family, to achieve some family goals and to keep on investing more in his crops. This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He had not had any other loans from state banks before, but FUDECOSUR has given him the loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
