A loan of $600 helped to buy materials for improving her cattle farm.

Estrella's story

Estrella is 49 years old and married. She currently lives together with her husband and four children. She plans to use her loan to buy electric fences so that she can divide up her fields. She will also buy grass seed for her cattle. Estrella has a suitable plot of land on which to carry out her cattle raising business and she plans to invest in buying a better quality of seed so that she can achieve better production. She would like to create more divisions in her fields so that she can make better use of her land. She would like to make more profits so that she and her family can live well and so that she can grow her cattle raising business.

This is Estrella's first loan from FUDECOSUR. She has not received previous loans from State banks but FUDECOSUR have offered her this loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
