A loan helped to buy chickens and supplies to raise them.


Rafael Maria's story

Rafael Maria is 60 years old. He is in a free-union relationship and lives with his partner, who is his greatest priority.

He wants the loan for the purchase of chickens to raise, as well as supplies and the feed concentrate necessary for their care and maintenance, with the goal of being able to sell them at a good price in the market in the future and generate more earnings for his household.

He hopes that this investment will offer his family a better quality of life and greater economic stability, and he hopes to be able to continue growing as a person and as a micro-entrepreneur.

This is the first loan that he has received from FUDECOSUR. He hasn't had other previous loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered him the loan with more accessible requirements and a much lower interest rate.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Pam McMurry.


This loan is special because:

It is structured so that farmers' repayment schedules align with their cash flows.
