A loan of $1,000 helped to improve his cattle farm.

Jose Paciente's story

José is 76 years old, married, and lives with his wife who is now his main concern. With the loan he plans to buy materials to improve his cattle farm. He wishes to improve the enclosures and the grazing land so the animals have better quality food. He has some vacant land but he wants to improve its quality.

From these improvements José expects to get better results and generate more income in a short period of time. He is thinking of the future of both his wife and himself.

José has not had loans from state banks in the past, but FUDECOSUR has offered him a loan with good repayment conditions and a much lower interest rate.
