A loan of $525 helped to buy supplies.


Annia's story

Annia is 27 years old. She is married and currently lives with her husband and son. Through the loan she hopes to buy supplies such as fertilizer and insecticide, and in turn, use them to help with labour. She hopes to keep her crops in good condition so they undergo less damage and production yield is not reduced. In this way her coffee crops can generate more earnings for her family. She doesn't have enough money to buy these products as she has a low income and no other way of obtaining capital, so she is asking for a loan. It will be her first loan through FUDECOSUR. She hasn't taken out a loan before with state banks, but FUDECOSUR has made it easier for her to take out a loan with them and at a much lower rate of interest.
