A loan of $725 helped to buy coffee seedlings and supplies.

Yamileth's story

Yamileth is 46 years old, married, and lives with her husband who is her main priority. She will use the money from this loan to buy compost, and calcium to improve the soil so that the crop will develop well. She will also buy fungicides and pay for labor to help with her coffee crop. Finally, she will buy seedlings to replant and increase the density of her plants so that she can take advantage of the fertile soil, the climate, and other things that favor the raising of coffee. With these improvements to her crop, she expects to increase her income a bit and improve her family’s living conditions. She will also accomplish some goals.

This will be her first loan through FUDECOSUR. She has not had previous loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has granted a loan easily and at a much lower interest rate.
