A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase chickens to fatten.


Maria Elena's story

María Elena, age 33, is married. She lives with her husband and three children who are her highest priorities. She expects to use this loan to purchase materials to open a store to profit from these animals and generate an income to keep improving and expanding her new project. She will also purchase food for the chickens in order to fatten them more quickly and bring them to the market soon for sale. She has the futures of her children and her husband in mind, and wants to lighten her husband's load by providing an extra income for her family. This is the first loan that she has received from FUDECOSUR. She hadn't had any previous loans from state banks, and FUDECOSUR has offered her this loan with greater ease and much lower interest rates.
