A loan of $1,000 helped to buy inputs for transplanting coffee plants.

Juan's story

Juan, 65, is married and lives with his wife and one son. With this loan he plans to buy bags to transplant coffee, to hire workers to help with transplanting the seedlings, and also to buy inputs like compost and fumigation. He wants to buy seeds and bags to make the seedlings and with the inputs he will get a very high quality planting so that he can sell at an excellent price in the local market. This will earn him more profits and give him a better quality of life and financial stability. This is his first loan from FUDECOSUR. He hasn't had other loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has given him a loan more easily and with a much lower interest rate.
