A loan of $1,000 helped to attend to his coffee.


Gerardo's story

Gerardo, 34 years old, is married and lives with his son and his wife, who are his number one priority.

With the loan he intends to buy supplies like manure and chemicals to keep his coffee plantation in optimum condition.

His goal is to keep his crops in the best condition so that the next harvest will have a greater production of coffee and an improved production output. His goal is that the improved crop with better production results will give him more income and improve his family's well-being.

This is the first loan that he has received from FUDECOSUR. He wouldn't have had other loans from state banks before, but FUDECOSUR has given him the loan with greater facilities and a much lower interest rate.
