A loan of $500 helped to help his corn crop.


Marvin's story

Marvin, age 52, is married and he currently lives alone.

He will use the loan to buy supplies to help his corn crop. He has a piece of property that is already seeded, and he needs to fertilize it to be able to generate more harvest this coming year. He wants to generate more harvest than last year in order to generate more income than last year.

His priority goal is to generate better income in order to repay the loan and better stabilize his standard of living better. He wants to do this in order to be able to enjoy improved well-being.

This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not had other previous loans in state banks. FUDECOSUR provided the loan with the best terms and a much lower interest rate.
