A loan of $600 helped to tend to his coffee crop.


Alfonso's story

Alfonso is 54 years old. He is married and lives with his wife and three children, who are his main priority.

With this loan, Alfonso plans to purchase the inputs necessary to tend to his coffee crop, such as fertilizers and pesticides. His land is suitable for full cultivation and is in production but in fair condition. His goal is to increase his harvest and to put the land into good condition for coffee production. In this way he will meet his primary goal of increasing production and generating higher earnings for the well-being of his family.

This is Alfonso's first loan with FUDECOSUR. He has not had previous loans with state banks, but FUDECOSUR granted him the loan with ease and the interest levels are much lower.
