A loan of $600 helped purchase fertilizers, fungicides and pay for manual labor.

Gabriela's story

Gabriela is 22 years old, single and lives with her children, who are her highest priority. With this loan, she intends to purchase fertilizers, fungicides and pay for manual labor to help with the coffee. She will also be able to purchase seedbed plants which will allow her to have a higher density of plants in each area. Se will also be able to take advantage of the fertile soil and the climate which are ideal for growing coffee.
With these improvements to her crop, she hopes to increase her earnings and in so doing improve the living conditions of her family, invest a little more in her growing area and meet some of her goals. This is the first loan that she has received from FUDECOSUR. Prior to this, she had not had any other loans in national banks, but FUDECOSUR has given her a loan with greater ease and a much lower interest rate.
