A loan of $625 helped to purchase farming components such as fertilizers and herbicides in order to plant a Venetian varietal of coffee.


Orlando's story

Orlando is 59 years old, married, and currently lives with his children and wife. With this loan he will purchase farming components such as fertilizers and herbicides in order to plant a Venetian varietal of coffee. With these products he hopes to plant a high quality crop and in the near term have an adequate harvest. He will also pay for labor to assist with planting. In addition, he will be able to buy Copperwood plants for his farm, and will take advantage of the good soil and weather conditions that favor coffee.

With these improvements he hopes to increase his income, and therefore improve the living conditions for his family. He will also be able to reinvest in his farm and complete his goals. This is the first loan he will receive through FUDECOSUR. He has never had a loan with another bank and FUDECOSUR was able to offer him credit with a lower interest rate.
