A loan of $825 helped to grow more coffee.

Dunia's story

Dunia is 27 years old and is married. She lives with her children and husband, who are her main priority. With this loan, she plans to purchase fertilizers and fungicides, and to pay for labor to help with her coffee crops. In addition, she will buy some coffee seedlings to replant and expand the density of her plantings per area; this way she can take advantage of the good fertility of the soil and the climatic and other conditions that favor the cultivation of coffee.

With these improvements, she hopes to increase her earnings a bit, thereby improving living conditions for her family. She also hopes to invest more to expand the area of her cultivations, and to achieve some other goals. This is the first loan that she has received from FUDECOSUR. She had not taken prior loans with the state banks, but FUDECOSUR has provided her with a loan with easier terms and a much lower rate of interest.
