A loan of $600 helped to buy fertilizers and fungicides and pay for labor to help with his coffee crop.

Melvin Rafael's story

Melvin Rafael is 47 years old. He is married, and he lives with his children and his wife, who are his greatest priority. With his loan, he intends to buy fertilizers and fungicides and to pay for labor to help with the coffee crop. In this way he will ensure that he can do a good job and have a good application of products. His intention is to take advantage of the property's good soil and topographic conditions for this crop, and also put into practice his experience growing coffee. In addition, he will be able to buy the best products, of the best quality, so his plantation will have good growth and good health, and he will have adequate production over the short and medium term. This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not had other loans in the past from state banks, but FUDECOSUR provided him the loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
