A loan of $600 helped to sow corn.

Lisimaco's story

Lisimaco is 44 years old and lives with his wife and two children, who are his top priority. He will use the money to buy supplies to tend his corn, such as fertiliser, fumigation sprays, and pesticides.

By giving his plantation optimum nutrition, he hopes to be able to increase his yield for this year and thus generate a higher income than in previous years. This will allow him to meet his household's needs while also offering his family a better quality of life and economic stability.

This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. Although he had no previous loan history with state banks, FUDECOSUR granted him the loan with better conditions and at a much lower interest rate.
