A loan of $975 helped to buy manure for the Tiquisque (a starchy tuber) crops.

Edier's story

Edier B. Sánchez, 48, is married and lives with his wife who is his greatest priority. He wants to buy manure for his tiquizque (a starchy tuber) crop in order to have a better harvest. He has a field that is appropriate for this project with two and a half hectares planted with tiquizque to care for.

He has been a farmer for several years and wants to grow and generate more income. This is his first loan from FUDECOSUR. He has no problems with his property but does want it to become a productive farm generating more production.

He has had other loans with State-owned banks but FUDECOSUR offered him a loan with easier terms and a much lower interest rate.

His goals are to produce his own wellbeing as well as his wife’s while growing more each day as a farmer.
