A loan of $1,075 helped invest in working 3 hectares of coffee.


Robert's story

Robert M. S. is 28 years old and married. He has a countryside property in Fila Naranja, where he cultivates coffee. He wants this loan to invest in the attendance of 3 hectares of coffee. It will help him to have a larger harvest next year. He has been growing coffee and grains (rice, beans) for more than 10 years. This is the second time Robert has financed with FUDECOSUR. Before he had a loan of 300000 colones that he paid off well. This loan has helped him because the prerequisites are easy to meet and the credit is very accessible. He has also taken out loans with formal banks. His wish is to get what is necessary for his property and home.
