A loan of $1,025 helped to buy concentrated feed for his pigs.


Carlos's story

Carlos, 32, is married and currently lives with his wife. With this loan, he plans to buy feed to fatten his pigs. He owns a number of pigs, and with this loan he plans to strengthen his business by feeding them with concentrate so they will fatten more quickly. He wants to get his animals to the ideal weight so that he can later sell them in the town market, or in the surrounding areas. With this activity of raising pigs to fatten, he wants to generate more income for himself and for his family's welfare. This is the first loan that he has received from FUDECOSUR. Prior to this, he had not taken loans from the state banks, but FUDECOSUR has provided him with a loan that has easier payments terms and a much lower interest rate.
