A loan of $1,000 helped purchase supplies for his coffee farm.

Angel Alonso's story

Ángel Alonso is 21 years old; he is single and lives with his parents. He will use the loan to purchase supplies for his coffee farm. He has a good plot of land which is already planted. His farm needs fertilizers so that next year's harvest will be better. He wants to provide the best care for his coffee in order to get the maximum results out of his farm during the next harvest. His goal is to increase his production from the year before and double his profits to benefit his future and to help his parents with the household expenses. This will be his first loan from FUDECOSUR. He had been unable to get a loan from state-run banks, but FUDECOSUR has provided him a loan with better conditions and a lower interest rate.
