A loan of $1,100 helped to plant bananas.

José Manuel's story

José Manuel B. C., 50, is married and has three children, who are his main priority in life; they are 24, 17 and 15 years old. He needs funds to buy chemicals for banana crops. The idea is to provide the farmland with proper care so that the banana crops will produce the best possible sale prices when time comes to sell them. He has a farm where he grows bananas and other crops.

This is his first loan with FUDECOSUR and he is very happy with the loan terms offered. José Manuel has many years of farming experience. He is sure that he will do well with the new project. He hopes to provide his family with a better quality of life and economic stability in the future so that he can continue to grow as a person and as a grower. In addition, he wants to be able to pay for the education of his children so that they will become professionals and upstanding citizens that are useful to society.
