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.
More information about this loan
FUDECOSUR works in one of the poorest regions of Costa Rica, where microfinance institutions (MFIs) are scarce or have a hard time keeping up with demand for small loans. By providing mostly agricultural loans, FUDECOSUR reaches rural borrowers that many MFIs consider to be too risky. However, this has also made it more difficult for the organization to find stable sources of capital to lend. Kiva's flexible, risk-tolerant capital plays a critical role in helping FUDECOSUR grow its portfolio and support even more borrowers.
