A loan of $1,025 helped to buy potato seeds and farming supplies.

Presley's story

Presley is 28 years old and married. She lives with her two children and husband. Presley plans to use her loan to buy potato seeds to sow. She will also buy fertilizers, herbicides and 'foliares' (fertilizers that are applied directly to a plant's leaves). She has a suitable plot of land, which is in excellent condition, on which she will carry out this business. Presley would like to enjoy an excellent potato production with the help of these supplies. She will sell her produce in her town market or in neighboring towns. Presley would like to make as much profit as she can for her own well-being, as well as that of her family. She would like to grow her business with a pig-fattening project.

This is the first loan that Presley has received 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.
