A loan of $725 helped buy livestock.

Sergio's story

Sergio G. Z., 39, lives in a common law marriage. He has two children, and they are his greatest priority. One child is two years old and the other is four months old.

He wants a loan to buy cows. He wants to buy two cows to raise in order to be able to sell them later and get greater earnings. The livestock business is a complement to his family because they also devote themselves to growing tubers.

It is the first time that Sergio has had a loan from FUDECOSUR. He says that the loan committee has helped him a lot. With this help he expects to proceed with his projects. He is very satisfied with the funds that he has received. In the future, he hopes to provide his family with a better quality of life and more economic stability.
