Rolando's story

Rolando is 44 years old, married and lives with his wife and son whom are his main priority. With this loan he expects to buy fertilizer and other products that will help him have a good planting season, including a better quality seed that adapts well to the climatic conditions and soil characteristics. He will also pay for day laborers to plant the seeds, use the products and help with the rest of the planting in order to ensure a job well done.

He hopes to take advantage of the good climate and soil which he has access to for this crop and also would like to put in practice his experience planting basic grains for several years. He wil also be able to buy better and higher quality products so that his crops develop well and safely so that he can soon has an adequate harvest.

With the earnings from the harvest he hopes to obtain he will invest in the well-being and education of his family and fulfill a few family goals while continuing to invest in his crops. This is his first loan that he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not had other loans in state banks but FUDECOSUR has brought forth this loan with ease and lower interest rates.
