A loan of $1,000 helped to buy coffee seeds and farming supplies.

Alba's story

Alba is 30 years old, she is married and she lives with her husband and their two children. She wants to invest the loan she is requesting in the purchase of coffee seeds in order to start a seedling bed, and also to buy supplies such as manure and fumigation and to pay for laborers. She has thought about buying all these supplies to provide good care to her seedling bed, in order to keep it in the best conditions to then sell her product in her community and in the neighboring villages; she aims at earning a good income to reach a better standard of living as well as economic stability. This is the first loan she receives from FUDECOSUR. She hadn’t had any previous loans from state banks but FUDECOSUR provided the loan with the best terms and a much lower interest rate.
