A loan of $2,025 helped to plant corn and beans.

José Joaquín's story

José Joaquín, age 49, is married and has three children who are his greatest priority.

He wants to buy corn and bean seeds and supplies in order to plant ten hectares on his farm, which is his own property. He has been devoting himself to his farm for several years. He wants to grow, and he also wishes for his farm to become more productive.

This is the first loan that he has received from FUDESCOSUR. He had no previous loans with state banks or cooperatives, but FUDESCOSUR offered the loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.

He has the desire to give his children the education they need in order to be prepared in the future and so that they are able to face life in an easier way.

He is currently a member of an association of basic grains producers. This association helps other producers to be able to sell their harvests.
