A loan of $1,000 helped to buy calves for milk production.


Henry's story

Henry, 35 years old, is in a common-law marriage and lives with his son and wife, who are his main priority. With his loan he is trying to purchase some small calves that are well-suited to being good dairy cows in the future. The idea is to take advantage of the grassy space he has, as well as the good terrain and climate conditions so that he is able have these animals and at the same time improve the herd of cattle and develop the calves to become cows with good performance in the future.

With this purchase he could develop another business activity and at the same time have savings that will allow him to have more animals and invest more in the property. This is the first loan that he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not had any previous loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered him the loan with greater ease and a much lower interest rate.
