A loan helped to purchase fertilizers, compost, and supplies to improve and increase his bean crops.


Giovanni's story

Giovanni wishes to receive a loan again. He is 51 years old. He is currently single and lives alone.

He wants the loan to purchase fertilizers, compost, and supplies to improve and increase his bean crops. He hopes that by performing this investment, it provides him with greater production and better quality.

He hopes that this investment provides his family a better quality of life and greater economic stability, and to be able to continue growing as a person and as a micro-entrepreneur.

It is the second loan that he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not previously had other loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has provided the loan to him with better terms and a much lower interest rate.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Sarah Tyler.


This loan is special because:

It reaches rural borrowers that are considered too risky for traditional banks.
