A loan of $1,075 helped buy Calves.


Francisco's story

Francisco B. V. is 45, single and has three children that are his number one priority. The childrens' ages are 18, 20 and 21. The loan is to purchase calves to raise them, as he is sure that he can take good care of them and obtain a profit when they are sold. In addition to the cattle business, he also works in agriculture, as well as raising pigs and chickens. This is the first time that he requests a loan from FUDECOSUR, he mentions that the credit committee has helped him a lot, because thanks to their help he has been able to get ahead with the different projects that he has planned, he is happy with the services that they provided. He hopes that in the future he can be able to provide his children with a better quality of life and economic stability.
