Teofilo's story

Teofilo A. C. is 77 years old, in a common law marriage, and has one son who is his biggest priority. His son is 36 years old. The loan he is requesting is to help him plant coffee, bananas, and grass. Also, he would like to buy fertilizer to better maintain his crops and produce a bigger harvest in order to improve his income. Teofilo also grows fruit trees and grass. This is his first loan from FUDECOSUR and he is very pleased with what they have provided him. He hopes to provide a better life and better standard of living for his son and his family.
