A loan of $1,000 helped support her coffee plantation to increase her crop yield.


Marlene's story

Marlene is 47 years old, married, and lives with her husband and 3 children, who are her greatest priorities. With her loan, she will buy supplies such as fertilizer and necessary chemicals to support her coffee plantation. She counts on the farming under regular conditions and the harvest is about to finish, but she would like to help her following crop to have better yields than this year’s. With this help, she would like to double her earnings from next year’s crop and, in this way, support her family more each day and have greater financial stability in the future.

This is the first loan she has received from FUDECOSUR. She has not had any previous loans in state banks, but FUDECOSUR has been able to better facilitate a loan and the interest rate is much lower.
