A loan of $1,025 helped to plant peppers and tomatoes.

Luiz Mario's story

Luis Mario is 45 years old, and he is married and currently lives with his wife. Plans to use the loan to buy pepper and tomato plant seeds and other items like fertilizers and insecticides. He has thought about making two different plantings of peppers and tomatoes and giving them good care so that he can then sell them in the local market and neighboring regions and in the town market, and thus he will be able to have a larger income and a better quality of life and economic stability.

This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has never before been given a loan from a large bank, but FUDECOSUR offered him a loan with great ease and at a much lower rate of interest.
