A loan of $1,000 helped to buy cattle for fattening.

María Emilce's story

María Emilce is 58 years old, is married and lives with her husband, who is her highest priority. With her loan she intends to purchase a pregnant cow with a weaning calf. The idea is to take advantage of the grassy space that she has, the good conditions of the land, and the climate in order to have these animals. She will also get some milk for her family and raise calves to sell as meat in the future.

With this purchase she will be able to develop another business, and also to have a savings that will allow her to have more animals and invest more in the property. This is the first loan she has received from FUDECOSUR. She hasn't had any other loans from state banks before, but FUDECOSUR has provided her the loan with greater ease and a much lower interest rate.
