A loan of $1,025 helped to purchase supplies.

Norma's story

Norma is 57-years old. She is married and currently lives with her husband and two children. With the loan, she plans to purchase supplies, like fertilizers and insecticides, and also to pay for help with the labor. She plans to maintain her crops and keep them from harm so she won't lose any production. And with her coffee project, Norma will be able to generate more income to contribute to her family. Norma doesn't have the capital she needs to make the above-mentioned purchases or to contract laborers, as she is low-income. She doesn't have any way to acquire the money she would need, and that is why she is requesting the loan. It is the first she has received from FUDECOSUR. Norma has never before taken out a loan from a state bank, but FUDECOSUR has offered her the loan with much better terms and at a much lower interest rate.
