José Ovidio's story

José Ovidio is 25 years old. He is single and lives with his parents and siblings who are his main priority. He plans to use his loan to buy fertilizers and other chemical products. He will also pay laborers to apply the products and tend his crops. In this way, he will ensure a good job. What he plans to do is make the most of the good climatic and soil conditions that he has for his crops and put into practice the experience that he has gained over several years in growing basic grains. He will also be able to buy the best, top-quality products so that his crops develop well and in good health. He hopes to obtain a suitable yield in the short term.

This is José Ovidio's first loan from FUDECOSUR. He has not received previous loans from state banks but FUDECOSUR have offered him this loan with better facilities and a much lower interest rate.
