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

José's story

José is 24 years old, single and lives with his parents and brothers, who are his main priority. With his loan he will purchase fertilizers, fungicides and to pay for labor to help him with his coffee crop, as well as purchasing some copperwood trees to replant when the rainy season starts because he wants to increase the density of his plants as well as taking advantage of the fertility of the soil and the climate conditions and other factors that favor the cultivation of coffee. With his improved harvests, he hopes to earn a little more money and be able to improve his family's living conditions as well as be able to invest a little more in his crop and to be able to complete some other goals. This is the first loan that he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not had any previous loans with any state banks, but FUDECOSUR is able to loan him money more easily and with more lower interest rates.
