A loan of $1,100 helped to buy cattle.


Marvin's story

Marvin Zuniga L. is 34, married, and has 3 children-they are his main priority. His children are 9, 8 and one year respectively. The loan he is asking for is to buy cattle for his ranch. He wishes to increase the number of animals to improve the quality in the breeding. He has 2.5 hectares of pasture for the development of the cattle. This is not the first time that Marvin has financed with FUDECOSUR. He tells us that the credit committee has helped him greatly with his expansion project, and he is very happy with the terms that he has been given. He hopes that in the future he can offer his family a better quality of life and greater economic stability.
