A loan of $1,000 helped to plant and raise beans on her farm.


Rosa's story

Rosa is 51 years old, married, and lives with her husband and their children which are her major priority. With this loan she intends to purchase bean seeds of good quality, and to assure that they will develop well under conditions in this zone, adequate fertilizers and other products for application to the crop, assuring a good germination. Also, she wishes to pay laborers for applying the products and assisting with the plants once they develop, in this way, assuring good results.

Rosa intends is to take advantage of the good climate and soil conditions the zone enjoys for the crop and, also, to put in practice her experience of various years in managing basic grains. In addition to being able to buy products of the best quality to assure that her plantings may have a good and healthy development and an adequate production, she hopes for an important harvest in the short run.

The income Rosa expects to obtain from the harvest will be utilized for her family's well-being and the education of her children, and to comply with other family goals, plus continue investing in her crops.

This is Rosa's 1st loan through FUDECOSUR. She has had no previous loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered her the loan under the best terms and at a much lower interest rate.
