A loan of $1,000 helped to buy farming supplies for her bean crops.

Ileana's story

Ileana is 22 years old, married, and lives with her husband and son who are her main priorities in life. She plans to use her loan to buy fertilizers and other chemical products. She will also buy good-quality seed and pay laborers to apply the products and help tend her crops. This will enable her to ensure a good job.

Ileana plans to make the most of the good weather and soil that she has for this sowing season. She will put into practice the experience that she has gained from several years growing basic grains. She will be able to buy better quality products so that her crops grow in a healthy manner. This will provide her with a decent yield in the short term.

Ileana plans to spend the income that she makes from her future harvest on her family's well-being and education, and to fulfill some family goals. She will also continue investing in her crops. This is the first loan that Ileana has received from FUDECOSUR. She hasn't received any previous loans from state banks but FUDECOSUR have offered her this loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
