A loan of $1,025 helped to buy fertilizer, fungicide and high-quality seedlings and to pay for the labor to prepare her land for cultivating coffee.


Xinia's story

Xinia is 48 years old, married and lives with her husband and children who are her top priority. With this loan she intends to buy fertilizer, fungicide and to pay for the labor to prepare her land for cultivating coffee. In addition, she will buy high-quality seedlings of the variety of coffee that grows well in this region in order to replant and increase the density of her crop. She wants to take advantage of the fertile soil, weather, and other conditions that favor coffee planting.

With these improvements to her coffee crop, Xinia hopes to achieve a small profit and improve her family’s living conditions. She also plans to invest a little more in her coffee fields to achieve her goals. This is the first loan Xinia has received through FUDECOSUR. She has not had any loans with state banks, but FUDECOSUR has provided her the loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
