A loan of $1,000 helped to cultivate coffee.

Jorge's story

Jorge, 44, is married. He lives with his children and his wife, who are his main priority. With this loan, he plans to prepare some land to put in new crops, because the current plants are depleted due to the harvests that they have provided over a number of years. He will also buy fertilizers and fungicides, pay for workers to help him with the coffee crops, and buy some new coffee seedlings to plant. In this way, he will have a new coffee plantation in a short period of time, where he will be able to take advantage of the good fertility of the earth and the favorable climatic conditions for coffee cultivation.

With these improvements, he expects to get more earnings in the future, and in this way improve his family's living conditions. He will also be able to invest a bit more in his farm, and also accomplish some other goals that he has. This is his first loan with FUDECOSUR. He had not taken loans before with the state banks, but FUDECOSUR has provided him with a loan with better payment terms and a much lower rate of interest.
