A loan of $950 helped plant yautia.

Eduardo's story

Eduardo S. C. is 30 years old, is single, and lives with his parents and one brother. He is applying for a loan to prepare land for planting tubers, specifically yautia. The plan is furthermore, to maintain the field, buy materials, and complete work on the fields. He wants to give proper maintenance to the land planted with yautia, so that he can count on good development and thus obtain the greatest income possible at harvest time. This is the first time that he will receive a loan from FUDECOSUR, and he is very happy with their services. Don Eduardo has worked in agriculture for a number of years. In the future, he hopes to offer his family a better quality of life and better economic stability and to be able to continue growing as a person and as a producer.
