A loan of $1,000 helped to buy beans for planting.


Carlos Rafael's story

Carlos is 28 years old and is married. His relationship with his wife is his highest priority. With this loan he intends to buy fertilizer and beans to plant. He also needs to pay laborers to help him plant the seed; in this manner he will be sure to do a good job. He intends to take advantage of the good climate and soil and also put into practice his basic experience in farm management. Also, he will be able to buy better products of higher quality for his farm so that he can maintain the health of the farm and get a good harvest in the short term. This is his first loan from FUDECOSUR. He has not taken other loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has enabled him to more easily obtain this loan and has given him a much lower interest rate.
