A loan of $625 helped to buy grass seed and cattle.

Gamaliel's story

Gamaliel, 59 years old, lives with his wife and their son who are his main priority. With this loan he would like to purchase some grass seed to improve the grass he currently has, as well as to buy some cattle. He would like to buy high quality seeds that adapt well to the climate and soil in the area where he lives, and he would like to do so as soon as possible in order to plant and take as much advantage of the winter season as possible. With the improvements in his cultivation, he expects to obtain greater income and thereby improve the living conditions for his family as well as invest a bit more in the area of livestock raising. This is the first loan that he will receive from FUDECOSUR. He has not had any previous loans with state banks, but FUDECOSUR has provided him this loan with greater ease and a much lower interest rate.
