A loan of $450 helped purchase merchandise for his new store.


Juan's story

Juan B. E. G. is 42 years old, divorced, and has 2 children who are his highest priority. His children are ages 19 and 12 and live with their mother in New Jersey, but he still supports them. Juan started a new business and needs items to sell. He is thinking about buying household products in San Jose and selling them in his hometown of Fila Naranja.


This is his first loan with FUDECOSUR and he believes his business can grow with the help of this loan. He had taken a loan with Banco Costa Rica in the past but he prefers the loans with FUDECOSUR because less paperwork is involved. He wants to provide his children with a better and more stable future, and he also hopes that they will be able to return to Costa Rica. Juan hopes that his new business will be a success.
