A loan of $1,000 helped to buy inputs.

Jose's story

José is 41 years old, is married, and lives with his wife. He wants this loan for purchasing fertilizer and to tend to a coffee plantation that they want to start. He wants to give adequate upkeep to the crop so that he can have greater yield and thus have a higher income.

In the future, he hopes to provide his family with a better quality of life and greater economic stability, and to be able to continue growing as a person.

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