A loan of $1,000 helped to aid coffee cultivation.

Francisco's story

Francisco is 51 years old. He is married and lives with his children and wife and names them as his biggest priority in life.

With his loan he intends to buy copperwood plants which give a good return and pay a coffee worker so that he can resow at the start of the rainy season. His objective is to increase the density of plants in the area and make the most of the fertile land and good climatic conditions that favour coffee cultivation.

With these improvements, he hopes to obtain some profits and improve his family's living conditions as well as invest a little more in cultivation and in meeting some goals.

This is the first loan that he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has never had any bank loans before but FUDECOSUR has allowed him easy access to the loan and the interest rates are very low.
