A loan of $1,000 helped to buy better quality wood and equipment for preparation and finishing treatments.

Oscar's story

Oscar, 39 years old, is married and lives with his wife and children. They are his biggest priority. With this loan, Oscar hopes to buy good quality wood to make furniture. Additionally, he will buy some tools necessary for preparing and finishing the wood in order to make better quality furniture pieces that customers find more attractive.

With the resulting earnings from selling finished wood products, Oscar will continue investing in more wood and equipment, as well as make some improvements to the building he works in. He hopes to be able to pay for his children's education and help his family progress and obtain a better quality of life.

This is Oscar's first loan with FUDECOSUR. Although he has never borrowed from any national banks, FUDECOSUR has offered him this loan with good terms and much lower interest rates.
