A loan of $1,050 helped to buy 4 cattle.

Andrés's story

Andrés M. F. is 19 years old, single and lives with his mother and 5 siblings. His family has a farm and then grow coffee and maintain a pasture. The whole family works on the farm and his mother has a grocery story. Now they are not using the pasture, so he wants a loan to grow and improve the land. The cows are for meat and he wants to continue to buy and sell cows to support his siblings and his 9 nieces and nephews. This is his first loan with FUDECOSUR, but his mother has had another loan from the same institution for her grocery store. Andrés' sister is the secretary of the commission and appears in the photo.
