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

Ramon's story

Ramón, 39, is married, and currently lives with his wife and children, who are his greatest priority. With the loan he will buy materials such as wire for improving his cattle farm, and agricultural supplies for his pastures. He has a farm planted with grass for raising cattle.

At the present time he needs to make some improvements to his fences and pastures, so he decided to take out the loan. He needs to provide his animals with good quality grazing, and at the same time he needs good fences to prevent his cattle from straying onto other farms.

His goal is to use this assistance to take better care of his cattle in order to have them in better condition for sale, and so get greater profits to improve his financial situation and his family's well-being.

This is his first loan with Fudecosur. He has not had other loans from regular banks before, but Fudecosur has offered him a loan on better terms, and at a much lower interest rate.
