A loan of $1,025 helped to buy supplies for his coffee crop.

Juán's story

Juán, 57, is married but he lives alone. He plans to use the loan to buy fertilizers, fungicides and organic products to help improve soil conditions for his coffee crop. He also wants to buy plants for transplanting when the rains begin so he can increase his plantation. This will enhance the use of the fertile soil and climate conditions favorable to the coffee crop.

With these crop improvements, Juán hopes to increase his earnings and improve his family's living conditions. He also wants to invest more in the crop area and meet some of his goals. This is his first loan through FUDECOSUR. He has never had a state bank loan, but FUDECOSUR is giving him better loan terms and a much lower interest rate.
