A loan of $1,100 helped to pay labor costs for farm improvements.


Gerardo's story

Gerardo A. P., 39, is married and lives with his wife and two children, who are 11 and 3 years of age. He needs funds to improve his farm; he needs to hire labor to do some improvements to the farm so that his crops will produce better. The idea is to improve and enlarge production capacity and expand the planting area. Gerardo has several crops in production like, coffee and pasture grass, among others. He wants to provide proper care so that he can get the best possible prices at harvest time.

This is his first loan with FUDECOSUR and he is very happy with the terms offered. Gerardo has been a farmer for many years. He hopes to improve his family's standard of living and have better economic stability in the future so that he can continue to grow both as a person and as a grower.
