A loan of $925 helped to buy livestock to provide for her family.


Maria's story

María is 43 years old, married, and has six children. She wants a loan to buy livestock in order to sell them when they are grown for profit. The livestock business helps her and her family to get ahead. It is the first time that María has borrowed through Fudecosur. She says that the credit committee has helped her a lot and has provided many amenities. She hopes that through the project she grows and achieves her goals so that in the future she can give her family a better quality of life and better financial stability. This is the first loan she has received from Fodecosure. She has not had previous loans through state banks, but Fudecosure has provided a loan that was more feasible and a much lower interest rate.
