A loan of $1,000 helped to help with planting of coffee seedlings.

Alcides's story

Alcides is married, 67 years old, and lives with his wife who is his top priority. This loan will be used to buy supplies to take care of his coffee seedlings, to buy fertilizers and for fumigation to prevent disease. He has made his living by growing coffee and now his coffee field needs replanting which is why he chose these coffee seedlings to repopulate his land while improving the conditions of his farm at the same time. He has a goal to increase production within a few years and in turn improve his financial stability for the future. This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. In the past, he has not had any other loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered the loan with greater ease and a much lower interest rate.
