A loan of $800 helped to buy supplies for his coffee fields.

Gerardo's story

54-year old Gerardo is married and lives with his wife and their five children. With the loan he plans to buy the supplies necessary to have an excellent coffee crop this year. He has good land for growing coffee and says that he’s planted a big area. Now he needs some assistance in order to get a good harvest.

With these improvements he will have a greater income and be better able to provide the necessities for his family as a successful coffee farmer. This is his first loan with Kiva partner FUDECOSUR. He has not had previous loans with state banks, but FUDECOSUR has given him a loan with better repayment options and a much lower interest rate.
