A loan of $500 helped to purchase tools for his carpentry workshop.


Hernán's story

Hernán, who is 46 years old, is married and has three children who are his highest priority. He wants to purchase a bench saw, a jigsaw, a plane, and a router to use in a small workshop where he makes all kinds of furniture. He has done this work for several years and wants his business to grow. This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR, and he has not had other loans at state banks either. FUDECOSUR offered him the loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate. Hernán wants to offer his children the education they need to be prepared and to be able to meet life's challenges more easily.
