A loan of $1,025 helped to grow corn.

Luis Andrey's story

Luis Andrey is 23 years old, single, and lives with his brothers and parents, who are his top priority. With his loan, he intends to manually prepare the land. This is how he conserves the best soil - he buys fertilizer, corn seeds, and other products which he needs for cultivation. Furthermore, it is to pay for the labor of growing and caring for the crops by manually eliminating weeds to avoid use of chemicals, as well as some cultivation work like making layers to avoid soil erosion due to the rain. This helps him assure good work. With the possibility of this loan, he hopes to have everything prepared on time and to take advantage of the rainy season, as well as to put many years of experience into practice as he handles basic crops. Additionally, he will be able to buy the best, top quality products so that his plantation will be well-designed and healthy, and to have adequate production in the short-term. He will use the income from the harvest that he hopes to obtain to complete some family goals and continue investing in more crops. This is his first loan received from FUDECOSUR. He had not had other loans from government banks before, but FEDECOSUR has provided him the loan with great ease and the interest rates are much lower.
