A loan of $900 helped to purchase seeds and supplies..


Elias's story

Elías is 39 years old, married, and currently lives with his wife and four children. With the loan he plans to purchase coffee plant seeds in order to make a plant nursery, as well as the bags he needs to make the nursery, supplies such as fertilizers and fumigants.

He has plans to make this nursery and give it the appropriate maintenance with the supplies, in order to later sell in the local market and neighboring areas. So he hopes to make more earnings and achieve a better quality of life and financial stability. This is the first loan he has received from Fudecosur. He has not taken out any previous loan with state banks, but Fudecosur has provided the loan with greater ease and at much lower interest rates.
