A loan of $925 helped purchase cattle.


Alejandra's story

Alejandra B. P. is 55 years old, married, and has one adult child who is her highest priority. Besides living with her husband, she also takes care of her five year old grandson. This loan will be used to buy cattle to raise. Her family will be able to earn more income when they go to sell the calves.

This is not the first time Sra. Alejandra has received a loan from FUDECOSUR. She said that the credit committee has helped her a lot and provided her with many services. Alejandra is also a seamstress and has been sewing since she was a young woman, but she wants to enter the cattle business. She hopes this project will grow so that her family will have a better quality of life and improved financial stability in the future.
