A loan of $900 helped livestock.


Rutbel's story

Rutbel N. C. is 45 years old and lives in a common-law marriage. He has three children who are his biggest priority. His children are ages 21, 17 and 1 respectively. The loan he is requesting is for buying calves and food for the livestock. Rutbel has an area of pasture where he will raise the animals. He is certain that he will be able to raise them well and when he sells them he will make a profit. This is his first loan with FUDECOSUR and he says that the loan committee has helped him a lot. Already they have helped him move forward the different projects he has proposed. In addition he is very happy with how easily he has received help. He hopes in the future to give his children a better quality of life, school and more economic stability.
