A loan of $1,025 helped to buy fertiliser and insect spray and to pay for labourers.

Jose's story

José is 32 years old. He is married and currently lives with his wife and two children. With this loan, José intends to buy supplies such as fertiliser and insect sprays as well as using it to pay for labourers. He wants to look after the plantation so the plants do not get damaged or produce a low yield. That way his coffee-growing project will make higher profits that he will be able to use for his family. José does not have enough to make these purchases on his own as he is poor and has no other way of finding the money that he needs. So, he is applying for his first loan with "Fudecosur". He has not had any other loans with state banks and "Fudecosur" is providing José with a loan with better conditions and a much lower interest rate.
