A loan of $725 helped to purchase fertilizers and fungicide and pay for assistance with his coffee.

José Antonio's story

José Antonio is 26 years old, is single and lives with his parents and brothers who are his highest priority. With his loan he aspires to purchase fertilizers and fungicide and to pay for assistance with the coffee. Besides being able to buy some plants in seedling containers to replant them and thus increase the density of plants per area, he will also take advantage of the good fertility of the soil, climate conditions and other things that favor the cultivation of coffee. With these improvements to the cultivation he hopes to obtain a little profit and thus improve the living conditions of his family, invest a little more in the cultivation area and also to be able to fulfill some goals. It is the first loan that he has received from Fudecosur. He had not had other loans from state banks before but Fudecosur has offered him the loan with greater ease and a much lower interest rate.
