A loan of $1,025 helped begin cultivating coffee.

María Alejandra's story

María Alejandra is 21, married, and lives with her husband, who is her highest priority. With the loan, she plans to purchase organic fertilizer, fungicide, and pay for manual labor for the work of preparing the fields for the coffee. She will manually prepare the land to better conserve the soil conditions. She also plans to purchase a few beds of seedlings to plant. She will take advantage of the fertile soil and the favorable climate and other factors that support coffee cultivation to have a good coffee growing area.

With these improvements to the cultivation, she hopes to earn a little bit of profit, be able to improve the living conditions of her family, invest a little more in her cultivation area, and also achieve some goals. This is her first loan with FUDECOSUR. She has not had any previous loans in state banks, but FUDECOSUR has provided her with a loan with the best terms and the lowest interest rate.
