A loan of $1,000 helped to tend his coffee plantation.

Antonio's story

Antonio is 29 and lives with his wife and daughter, who are his number one priority. The loan will be used to buy supplies for his coffee plantation; he will buy manure and pesticide and weed killer, which he needs to keep his crop in good condition. The plot of land he owns is perfect for his project and his plantation is doing well and so he thinks he can tend it so as to boost his production this year. His goal is to increase his earnings in these difficult times and to provide a better quality of life for his family. This is his first loan from FUDECOSUR. He has already had other loans from state banks, but FUNDECOSUR has granted him a loan with better loan facilities and a much lower interest rate.
