A loan of $1,025 helped to plant chilis.

Maria's story

María, 57, is married and lives with her husband and her two children. With this loan, she plans to buy supplies such as fertilizer to begin planting chilis, as well as to help pay labor costs. She would like to maintain her plantations so that they do not suffer from any damage and so that no production is lost. With her chili project, she hopes to generate more earnings to contribute to her family.

She does not have the necessary capital to make this purchase, since she has a low income and does not have a way to acquire the necessary money. Therefore, she has applied for a loan, which is her first with FUDECOSUR. She has not had any previous loans with state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered her a loan with greater flexibility and a much lower interest rate.
