A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase supplies for growing chilli peppers.

Candido's story

Candido is 80 years old and married. He lives with his wife. He wants the loan in order to put it towards a chilli pepper plantation he wants to start and buy compost. He wants to maintain his crops well so that he has better output and greater earnings. He hopes to give his family a better quality of life and better economic stability in the future, and to be able to continue growing as a person and as a producer. This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has had no other loans with state banks, but FUDECOSUR has extended the loan to him on more agreeable terms and with a much lower interest rate.
