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


Juan's story

Juan, 65, has three children and lives with his wife. He needs the loan to buy livestock to raise so that when it grows they can be sold and profits earned. The livestock business will help him and his family to move forward.

This is the first time Juan has financed himself with Fudecosur. He states that the credit committee has helped him quite a bit and he’s gotten good terms. He hopes to grow with this project and to reach his objectives so that he can provide his family with improved quality of life and better economic stability in future.

This is his first loan from Fudecosur. He’s had no previous loans with state banks and Fudecosur offered him the best terms and a much lower interest rate.
