A loan of $1,025 helped to buy laying hens.

Maria's story

María is 55 years old. She is divorced and at the moment is living on her own.

She is hoping to buy laying hens with this loan. She plans to buy these hens in order to sell the eggs to local people and in some grocery stores. In this way she can earn a better income, improve her quality of life and achieve economic stability.

This is her first loan from FUDECOSUR. She has not taken out a loan with a government bank before. However, FUDECOSUR has offered her this loan with better facilities and at a lower interest rate.
