Manuel Angel's story

Manuel Ángel is thirty-three years old, is married, and lives with his children and wife, who are his main priority. With the loan, he intends to buy fertilizers, corn seeds, and other products he requires to carry out the sowing of his crop. He will also pay laborers to help with planting and crop assistance, like manual weeding in order to not use chemicals and some farming work, like making levels to prevent ground erosion due mainly to rain. In doing this, he is sure to do good work.

He intends to take advantage of the good climate and ground conditions that he counts on for his crop, and to also put into practice his several years experience in handling basic grains.

Furthermore, he will be able to buy the best products of the best quality so that his plantation has good development and health, and so that he has good production in the short-term. With the profits from the harvest that he hopes to make, he will invest in the well-being and studies of his family, meet some family goals, and continue investing more in his crops.

This is the first loan that he receives from FUDECOSUR. He has not had other loans from state-owned banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered him a loan with greater ease and at a much lower interest rate.
