A loan of $500 helped to buy supplies.

Manuel's story

Manuel is an enterprising 38-year-old man, who lives with his wife. He is currently seeking a loan to buy supplies such as fertiliser and fumigant. He wants to protect his coffee plants, so as to keep them in good condition during their growth and, thereby, obtain a high-quality product. The only thing stopping him is the fact that he lacks the money to continue production. He and his wife depend on the business for their livelihood and it is for this reason that he is applying for a loan. This FUDECOSUR loan is his first; he has no other loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has granted him the loan with better loan facilities and with much lower interest rates...
