Melvin's story

Melvin C. C. is 42, has a live-in girlfriend, and has 3 children, who are his top priority. They are 16, 12, and 7. He will use this loan to buy some calves to fatten and feed for them. He hopes to give them adequate care so he can obtain the largest profit profitable when he sells them. He also wants to increase the number of animals he has and to be able to give them the best conditions. He has a suitable area to care for them and to raise them. This is the first time that he has had a credit with FUDECOSUR, and he is very happy with the terms they have offered him. Don Melvin has raised animals for several years. In the future, he hopes to offer his family a better quality of life and more economic stability and to keep growing as a person and producer.
