A loan of $925 helped to buy coffee seedlings.


Alexander's story

Alexander is 43 years old. He is married and lives with his wife and three children.

With this loan he plans to buy some seedlings to replant when the rains begin. This will allow him to increase the density of plants by area.

With these improvement to his crop he hopes to obtain some earnings, improve his living conditions and accomplish certain goals. This is his first loan from Fudecosur. He had no prior loan history with state banks, but Fudecosur has offered him a loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Laurie Hiller.


This loan is special because:

It reaches rural borrowers that are considered too risky for traditional banks.
