A loan of $525 helped to buy supplies such as fertilizers and fumigants.


Rafael's story

Rafael, an enterprising man, is 39 years old, married, and lives with his wife and three children. He is currently requesting a loan in hopes of buying supplies, such as fertilizers and fumigants. He wants to maintain his coffee crops so he can keep them in good condition during their development and obtain high quality produce. This gentleman's only limitation to continued growth is a lack of money, as they depend on this business to be able to get ahead. This is why he is asking for this loan and it is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not taken out loans with state banks, but FUDECOSUR offered him a loan with greater credit facilities and a much lower interest rate….
