A loan of $725 helped to plant ñampi [Costa Rican tuber].

Miguel's story

Miguel is 61 years old, married, and lives with his son and wife, who are his highest priority. With his loan, he would like to buy fertilizers and other chemical products, as well as seeds, in addition to paying for labor for the planting and caring for the field. In this way, he would be assured of doing a good job.

What he hope to do is take advantage of good climatic and soil conditions for this crop, and also put into practice many years of experience in managing these plants. In addition to being able to buy the best products and of the best quality so that his farm grows well and healthy, in the short term he will have adequate yield.

He will use the income from the harvest that he hopes to get for the wellbeing of his family, to achieve some family goals and to continue investing more in the crops.

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