A loan of $600 helped to plant vegetables..


Kattia's story

Kattia is 24 years old. She is in a common-law marriage, and lives with her son and husband, who are her greatest priorities. With her loan, she intends to purchase seeds, wood, and plastic, among other materials, and to pay labor for the work done. In this way she will ensure a job well done. She intends to take advantage of the good topography of the terrain, climate, potable water and experience in vegetable farming, and in the short or medium term, to have a plantation for sale. With the possible profits she expects to invest a little more, in addition to improving her condition of life and to fulfill some family goals.

This is the first loan that she has received from FUDECOSUR. She hasn't had other loans from government banks before, but FUDECOSUR has offered her the loan with greater ease and a much lower interest rate.
