A loan of $700 helped to buy foliar fertilizers for his crops and to pay for labor.

Víctor's story

Víctor is 64 years old and married. He lives with his wife and children, who are his main priority. Víctor intends to use this loan for buying foliar fertilizers that he can apply during the summer season. By applying these to his crops, he will keep them in good condition. He will also pay laborers to improve the condition of his land. Víctor will have them build curved terraces that will help prevent soil erosion during the rainy season. This will maintain the fertility and preserve the natural nutrients in the soil. He will also take advantage of the weather and other conditions that favor the cultivation of coffee.

By making these improvements to his crops, Víctor hopes to earn a bit more profit so that he can improve his family's living conditions. This will also allow him to invest a little more into his farmland and also accomplish a few other goals.

This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. Víctor has not received any other loans from the state banks. FUDECOSUR is providing this loan with better terms and a lower interest rate.
