A loan of $1,025 helped to buy supplies and coffee.

Marco's story

Marco, 62, is married and lives with his wife and three children. He wants to buy seedlings to resow his coffee plantation as well as some supplies.

He depends on the soil and wants to resow the most damaged areas to increase the next harvest. He wants to become a bigger coffee grower in the area.

With these improvements he aims to increase coffee production and also generate income in order to keep moving ahead and improve his well being.

This is the first loan he receives from FUDECOSUR. He has no previous state-run bank loans. FUDECOSUR easily gave him a loan with a low interest rate.
