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


Lidieth's story

Lidieth, 36, is married and lives with her husband and children, who are her biggest priority.

With her loan she plans to prepare her plot of land manually to have better soil conditions and to buy corn seed, organic fertilizer, and other products she needs for planting and caring for the crop. She also needs to pay for labor to plant and maintain the crop, such as manual weeding to avoid chemicals, and some cultivation tasks such as making levels to avoid soil erosion from the rain. This way she'll be certain of having a good crop.

She hopes the loan will make it possible to have everything ready before the rains end so the crop will be a good size. She also will put into practice various years of experience growing basic grains. And she wants to buy the best-quality products so her farm will have good and healthy growth.

She'll use the income she hopes to get from the harvest to achieve some family goals and continue investing more in her crops.

This is the first loan she has received from FUDECOSUR. Previously she had not had other loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered her a loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
