A loan of $625 helped plant bananas.


Jorge Alberto's story

Jorge Alberto is 41, has a common-law marriage, and lives with his daughter and wife, who are his number one priority. With the loan he plans to purchase fertilizer, fungicide, and pay for hired help to prepare the land. He also plans to purchase high quality, healthy banana trees so that they can develop well in a short period of time. He wants to take advantage of the fertile soil and the favorable climate conditions that support banana cultivation. With these improvements to his crop, he hopes to make a little bit of profit, be able to improve the living conditions of his family, invest more in his area of cultivation, and also accomplish some goals. This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not has had other loans in state banks, but FUDECOSUR has provided him the loan with the best terms and the lowest interest rate.
