A loan of $1,000 helped to grow coffee crops.

Johel Andres's story

Johel Andrés is a single 19-year-old man who lives with his parents and his siblings, who are his top priority.

He intends to use this loan to purchase coffee seedlings that are appropriate for his area. He will ensure that they are healthy and of a good size so that they will develop optimally. He will plant at the start of the rainy season. His goals are to increase the density of plants in his fields, and also to take advantage of the fertile soil and climatic conditions that are favorable for the cultivation of coffee.

With these improvements, he hopes to be able to make a little profit and thus be able to improve his family's quality of life. He will also invest a little more in his fields and be able to complete some other goals as well. This is his first loan through FUDECOSUR. He has not taken any loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has brought him this loan opportunity with greater ease and at much lower rates of interest.
