A loan of $1,100 helped sowing tubers.


Luis Angel's story

Luis Angel A. M. is 55 years old, is married and lives with his wife. He has 2 children, 33 and 27 years old. He wants this loan to prepare his land to sow tubers, particularly ñampí. The idea is, apart from preparing the land, to also buy lime and other products to complete the sowing. Luis wants to give adequate maintenance to his 5 hectares of crops and achieve a better quality of crop to obtain the best earnings possible when it is time to harvest. This is the first time he has sought a loan with FUDECOSUR and he is very content with the facilities that they have granted. Don Luis Angel has worked in agriculture for many years. His hope for the future is to give his family a better quality of life and better economic stability, and to be able to continue growing as a person and producer.
