A loan of $400 helped to buy farming supples.

Jimmy Alonso's story

Jimmy is 23 years old, single, and lives with his parents and siblings. They are his top priority. He will use the money from this loan to prepare his land and buy fertilizers, bean seeds, and other things for his crops so that they will have good germination, good quality seeds, and pay for labor with which to apply the products and help with the crops once they are developed. This way he will ensure good work. He wants to take advantage of the good climate and soil in the zone. He also wants to use the experience he has from having managed basic grains over various years. Besides being able to buy the best quality products, he wants his plantation to have good development and health so that he will have a good short term harvest. He will use the proceeds from his harvest toward his family's wellbeing and also to meet some family goals and continue to invest in his crops. This will be his first loan through FUDECOSUR. He has not had any previous loans, but FUDECOSUR has provided him a loan with ease and at much lower interest rates.
