A loan of $550 helped fertilizer and pruning for his coffee crop.

Jose's story

Jose R. A. C. is 80 years old, married, and has a 23-year old son. He has always worked growing coffee and today has 9 hectares. He also grows basic grains. He wants a loan to help grow coffee, above all for fertilizer, pruning and cleaning. This loan will help him have a greater production in future harvests. This is the first time Jose is seeking a loan with FUDECOSUR and he thinks that it is going to help him with his harvests. He wishes to be able to offer a better future for his children.
