A loan of $1,000 helped to invest in his coffee crop.

Roque's story

Roque, 54, is married and lives with his wife and child, who are his biggest priority.

With his loan he plans to buy fertilizer and fungicide, pay for labor to help with the coffee crop, and buy some seedlings to replant so he can increase the density of plants in the field. He also wants to make the most of the good soil fertility as well as climate and other conditions that favor coffee production.

Roque hopes to earn some more profit and improve his family's living conditions with these improvements. He also wants to invest a little more in the crop as well as achieve some goals.

This is Roque's first loan from FUDECOSUR. He hadn't had previous loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR offered him a loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
