A loan of $800 helped to buy seed and supplies for her coffee seedling bed.

Yajaira's story

Yajairais 28, single, and lives with her two children. With the loan, she intends to plant coffee on her property, which is uncultivated. She intends to invest in seed in order to do the seedling bed first. Then she will buy supplies such as fertilizers and fungicides, and hire labor, in order to get a better coffee harvest and better yield.

She wishes to put her small farm into production, and earn as much as she can for her well-being and that of her children. In this way, she will be in a more stable financial situation.

This is the first loan she has received from Fodecosur. She hadn't had other loans before from state banks, but Fodecosur has offered her the loan on better terms and at a much lower interest rate.
