Silenia's story

Shirley is 35 years old and married. She lives with her husband and daughter. Her family is her priority in life. With this loan she will buy fertilizer, fungicides and workers to help with her coffee plants before the harvest begins She will also buy some seedlings in order to start new plants. She needs to do this as soon as possible as she needs sufficient rain. She would like to increase the number of plants she has in an area in order to take advantage of the fertile soil, the climate and other things that help the coffee grow. With these improvements to her coffee plantation, she hopes to earn a bit of money and improve the conditions of her family. She would like to invest a little more in her plantation and also meet her goals. This is her first loan from FUDECOSUR. She has not had other loans from the state banks. FUDECOSUR has offered good terms for loans and much lower interest rates.
