A loan of $725 helped to tend to the coffee crop.


Josué's story

Josué is 19 years old, single, and lives with his parents and siblings, who are his highest priority.

With his loan, he would like to purchase fertilizers and fungicides, and pay for labor for tending the coffee crop. He would also like to buy some copperwood plants to replant at the beginning of the rainy season. This is to increase the density of plants, in addition to taking advantage of the good soil fertility and climatic and other conditions that favor the coffee crop.

With these improvements to the crop, he hopes to earn a little more money and thus be able to continue studying and improving his family's living conditions. He would also like to invest a little more in the crop and also achieve some goals.

This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not had previous loans with state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered him the loan with greater ease and with much lower interest rates.
