A loan helped to buy ornamental plants, compost, fertilizers and the materials necessary for developing and maintaining her nursery.


Maureen Milena's story

Mauren Milena is 45 years old. She is divorced and lives with her children who are her top priority. She wants the loan for buying ornamental plants, compost, fertilizers and the materials necessary for improving her nursery.

She needs to invest in new plants to offer a variety of products to her customers and at the same time be able to improve the exhibitors for providing more comfort when receiving buyers.

She hopes that this investment will provide her family with a better quality of life, more financial stability and allow her to continue growing as a person and as a microentrepreneur.

This is the first loan she has received from FUDECOSUR. She has not had previous loans at state banks but FUDECOSUR has provided the loan with the greatest ease and a much lower interest rate.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Hasmin Sherwin.


This loan is special because:

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