A loan of $1,000 helped to plant beans.

Yolan's story

Yolan is 35 years old. He is married and lives with his wife and daughter, who are his main priority. With the loan, he intends to buy fertilizer and other product to apply to the crop so he can have good germination, as well as good quality bean seeds. He will also pay for labor costs to apply the products and help with the crop once it has some growth and in this way ensure good work. He intends on taking advantage of the good weather and soil conditions the area has for this crop, and also put into practice his years of experience managing basic grains. He also wants to buy the best products of the best quality so his farm will have good growth and a good harvest and an important yield in the short term. With the income from the harvest he hopes to obtain the well being and education for his family and meet some family goals and keep investing more in the crops. This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He hasn't had any loans before with state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered him the loan with better terms and a much lower rate of interest.
