A loan helped maintenance of his coffee crop.

Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos C. Guzmán, age 32, is married and lives with his wife and 5 year old son. His family is his greatest priority. The loan that he seeks will assist on his farm, specifically with the cultivation of coffee. He plans to buy fertilizer in order to give his coffee fields adequate maintenance so that he obtains better quality crops and as much income as possible from his harvest.

This is the first time that he has sought a loan from FUDECOSUR, and he is very pleased with the assistance he has been offered. Don Juan has worked in agriculture for many years. For the future, he hopes to offer his family a better quality of life and greater economic stability. He also hopes to continue improving as a person and as a farmer,
