A loan of $625 helped to care for his tomato and chili pepper crops.

Gerardo's story

Gerardo is 57 years old, and lives in a civil union with his wife. He is going to use the loan to buy the supplies needed to care for his tomato and chili pepper crops. He relies on these tomato and chili pepper crops. He has already established them in an area with excellent conditions, to which he wants to attend and improve his results. His goal is to have a good harvest from these crops and to strengthen his project every day, and if possible to grow with his project. He also wants to generate profits in order to get ahead with the loan repayments and to continue to provide a good quality of life for his wife.

This is his first loan received through FUDECOSUR. He has not had other loans previously through state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered him the loan with better facilities and a much lower interest rate.
