A loan of $1,025 helped to tend to his coffee crops.

William's story

William, aged 32, is married and lives with his 2 children and his wife, who are his highest priority.

He intends to use the loan to buy supplies for tending to his coffee plantation for the coming year. Specifically, he is going to buy manure and products to apply to the crop to improve the quality of the plants, and so increase his next harvest. He can count on land that has already been already established for several years, and a plantation in fair condition which he wants to tend to and improve.

His goal is to increase his harvests and generate more income to give his family a better quality of life on a daily basis.

This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not taken other loans previously from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered the loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
