A loan of $1,100 helped purchase compost & fertilizers to maintain his coffee crop.


Hernán's story

Hernán U. Q. is 79 years old, married, and lives with his wife and two children. The loan he is requesting will be used to maintain his farm, specifically for growing coffee. His plan is to prune his crops and buy compost and fertilizers to keep them adequately maintained. This will enable him to achieve better quality and higher revenues at harvest time. This is not the first time he has received a loan from FUDECOSUR and he is very happy with the services that have been provided, the simplicity of the loan process, and the low interest rates.


Don Hernán has twenty years of experience as a coffee producer. For the future, he hopes to provide his family with a better quality of life and greater financial stability. He also wants to continue growing as a person and as producer.
