A loan of $1,000 helped to buy heifers to raise.

Hellen's story

Hellen is married. She is 35 years old. She lives with her husband and their 2 children, who are her greatest priority. With the loan, she will buy some heifers to keep on some land that is suitable to use. She has always raised these animals, and it has gone very well for her at the time of sale when they are big. For this reason, she wants to again buy more to thus have more in her care. She hopes to have them ready for sale quickly and be able to sell them in good times and to thus generate more income for their well-being and to help her husband with the household obligations. This is the first loan that she has received from FUDECOSUR. She has not had other previous loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered her the loan with a better payment plan and a much lower interest rate.
