A loan of $925 helped to plant coffee.

Antonio's story

Antonio, age 22, is single and currently lives with his parents and two siblings. He intends to use the loan to buy a coffee seedbed to later use for sowing. He will also buy fertilizers and fumigation. The loan will also help pay for the labor.

He is planning on buying this seedbed in order to be able to produce more and to be able to generate more income. He will do this to get a better quality of life for himself and his parents.

This is the first loan he has gotten from FUDECOSUR. He has not had any other loans with state banks. However, FUDECOSUR has provided the loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
