A loan of $1,000 helped to buy pigs to fatten.

Gladis's story

Gladis is 48 years old, married, and currently lives with her husband and children. She plans to use this loan to buy pigs to fatten. She has a suitable location for raising the pigs and, furthermore, she has been working with these animals for several years. She would like to invest in buying some pigs which she will later sell in the local market. Her goal is to make profits with which she will make her loan repayments and also improve her financial stability and her family well-being.

This is the first loan that Gladis has received from FUDECOSUR. She has not received previous loans from state banks but FUDECOSUR have offered her this loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
