A loan of $600 helped to plant coffee.

José Alejandro's story

José Alejandro is 36 years old. He is married and lives with his wife and son, who are his main priority. With his loan, he intends on buying coffee seedlings for planting, fertilizer, fungicide, and to pay for the cost of labor for help with the coffee. He wants to do this work when the rains start in order to increase the plant density by area and take advantage of the good soil fertility and weather conditions that favor coffee growing. With these crop improvements, he hopes to obtain a little profit and thus improve the quality of life of his family and also invest a little in the crop and meet some goals. This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He hasn't had any loans before from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered him the loan with more ease of payment and a much lower rate of interest.
