A loan of $1,025 helped to improve his coffee nursery.

Oscar's story

Oscar is 44 years old, married, and lives with his children and wife who are his highest priority. With his credit he intends to purchase shade providing material ("sarán") and supplies to make a cover for his coffee nursery. This will protect the nursery from the sun's rays so that the seedlings will survive the summer. Besides being able to have good quality seedlings to plant and increase the density of plants in the area, he will be able to take advantage of the soil's fertility, the region's good climatic conditions, and other factors that favor the cultivation of coffee.

With these improvements to his cultivation, he hopes to obtain a little bit of profit, which he will use to improve his family's quality of life, invest in his work, and achieve some goals.

This is the first loan Oscar will receive from Fundecosur. He hasn't had loans with state banks before, but Fundecosur has provided this loan with better facilities and a lower interest rate.
