A loan of $2,000 helped to buy coffee seedlings and agricultural supplies.

Erick's story

Erick is 21 years old, married, and lives with his wife and two children. He would like this loan in order to buy coffee seedlings for replanting his coffee plantation, which is a bit damaged. He would also like to buy supplies like fertilizer and fumigants. He would like to perform adequate maintenance for his crops and to replant the damaged parts. This would allow him to improve his production and thereby increase his income. Erick has been working with coffee for several years. He hopes that in the future he will be able to offer his family a better quality of life and greater economic stability, and to continue growing as a person and as a producer. This is the first loan he has received through FUDECOSUR. He has not had loans from state banks either, but FUDECOSUR offered him a loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
