A loan of $1,000 helped to plant coffee.

Giner's story

Giner is 44 years old. He is married but he lives alone. With his loan, he intends to buy fertilizer, fungicide and to pay for labor costs to help with the coffee. He will also buy some seedlings to do some re-planting when the rains begin in order to increase the density of plants by area. and take advantage of the good soil fertility and weather conditions that favor coffee growing. With these improvements to the crop he hopes obtain a little profit. This will help him improve his quality of life and also invest a little more in the planting area and achieve some personal goals. This is the first loan that he has received from FUDECOSUR. He hasn't had any previous loans with state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered him a loan with more ease of payment and a much lower rate of interest.
