A loan of $975 helped to plant mamón.

Annia's story

Annia, 38 years old, is married and lives with her husband, who is her top priority. With her loan, she plans to buy fertilizer, fungicide and to pay for manual labor to prepare a plot of land to plant mamón trees [a type of fruit, similar to a lychee]. She will also buy good quality tree grafts.

With the crop from this new plantation she hopes to have better earnings and thereby improve the living conditions of her family, and also invest a bit more in the area of crops and also achieve various goals.

This is the first loan she has received from FUDECOSUR. She hadn’t had a loan before from a state bank, but FUDECOSUR offers loans with greater ease of use and much lower interest rates.
