A loan of $1,000 helped with his coffee.

William's story

William is a married 40 year old man who lives with his wife and children whom are his main priority. With this loan he plans on paying for fertilizers, fungicides, and manual labor to help him cultivate his coffee this coming summer. He also plans to purchase seedbeds so that he can replant the coffee and increase the number of plants on his land. He hopes to take advantage of the fertility of the land and the good weather conditions among other things that favor the cultivation of coffee. With these improvements to his coffee he expects to increase revenue and thus improve his family's quality of life. Also, he would invest a bit more in his land and achieve other goals. This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has never before received loans from other banks but FUDECOSUR has given him the opportunity with a lot less scrutiny and lower interest rate.
