A loan of $600 helped to attend to his coffee plantation in buying fertilizers, fungicide, and paying day laborers.

Ruben's story

Ruben is twenty-eight years old and is married. He lives with his wife and son; they are his top priority.

With his loan, he will buy fertilizers, fungicide, and pay laborers to help with the coffee. He will also be able to buy seedling plants in order to replant and thereby increase the plant density in the area. He will be able to furthermore take advantage of the fertile ground, climate, and other conditions that favor the cultivation of coffee.

With these improvements to his crop, he hopes to obtain profits and thereby improve the life conditions of his family. He also hopes to invest a bit more in his crop land and to also meet some of his goals.

This is the second loan he has received through FUDECOSUR. He had not had other loans previously in state banks, but FUDECOSUR offered him a loan with greater ease and at a much lower interest rate.
