A loan of $725 helped to buy equipment and tools to do better construction finishing.


Edwin's story

36 year old Edwin is married and lives with his 2 children and wife who are his major priority. He will use the loan to buy a machine for cutting wood that he needs to strengthen his little construction business. He has been working in construction for some years and right now is needing this machine to make his work more precise and save valuable time so that he can get on to other construction jobs. He thinks that, with this purchase, he will have a more agile business and better finishes on his jobs in which case he hopes to have more job offers and so to generate more income for his economic stability and offer his children a better quality of life in the future, which is his primordial desire as a parent. This is the first loan that he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not had loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered him a loan with better features and an interest rate that is much lower.
