A loan of $400 helped to buy fertilizer.


Gilberto's story

Gilberto is 30 years old. He is married and currently lives with his wife and two children. With the loan he hopes to buy supplies like fertilizers, and fumigants. He intends to maintain the fields so they don't suffer any damage and so they don't lose production, and so with his coffee-growing project be able to generate more profits to contribute to his family. For this reason he is applying for a loan, and it's the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He had not had other loans from state banks before, but FUDECOSUR has offered him a more convenient loan with much lower interest rates....
