A loan of $1,025 helped to purchase supplies and pay for labor.


Carmen's story

Carmen is 48 years old, is married, and lives with her husband and three children. With this loan, she intends to purchase supplies such as fertilizers, pesticides, and help with labor. She plans to maintain her crops so that they do not suffer harm or lose productivity, and therefore generate more revenue from her coffee project to contribute to her family.

Since she is of few resources, she does not have the necessary capital for the purchase or the labor contracts, and does not have the means to acquire the money needed. For these reasons, she has requested this loan, the first loan she has received from FUDECOSUR. Prior to this, she had never had another loan from a national bank, but FUDECOSUR has given her loan with great ease and a very low interest rate.
