A loan of $800 helped to care for her coffee.


Shirley's story

Shirley is 31 years old, married, and lives with her children and spouse, who are her main priority. With her credit, she plans to buy leaf mulch, fertilizers, fungicides, and pay a day laborer to help with the coffee, and in this way ensure a good application of the products and do a good job of it. What she hopes is to take advantage of the good soil conditions and topography which the land has for this type of cultivation, and also to put her experience with coffee growing into practice. Besides being able to buy the best products, she will use those of the best quality to ensure that her plantation will have good and healthy growth and to have a sufficient level of production in this growing season. This is the first loan she has received from FUDECOSUR. She has never taken out a loan from a state bank before, but FUDECOSUR has offered her a loan with ease and at a much lower interest rate.
