Karoly Vanessa's story

Karoly Vanessa is 21-years old, single and lives with her siblings and parents, who are her first priority. With the loan, Karoly Vanessa plans to purchase seeds to improve the shade for her coffee plants and to do do some soil conservation. She will also purchase a variety of copperwood that gives a good yield and pay laborers who help with the coffee crops. In addition, she wants to replant at the beginning of the rainy reason with the goal of increasing the plant density and taking advantage of both the good soil fertility and climate conditions that are favorable for coffee plants. With these improvements to her crops, Karoly Vanessa hopes to earn a bit more and thereby improve her family's quality of life. She also hopes to invest a bit in her crops and meet some goals. This is the first loan that Karoly Vanessa has received from FUDECOSUR. She has not previously received any loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered her the loan with better terms and at a much lower interest rate.
