A loan of $550 helped to purchase calves for fattening.

Carlos's story

Carlos is 60 years old, is married, and lives with his son and wife, who are his number one priority. With this loan, he hopes to purchase some calves to fatten and bring to the proper weight. The idea is to take advantage of the pasture space that he has, and the good land and climate conditions, to be able to have these animals and later make a little profit by selling the fattened cattle for meat. With this purchase, he will be able to establish another line of work and also have savings that will allow him to have more and more animals and invest more in his plan for the property.

This is the first loan that he has received from Fudecosur. He hadn't ever received other loans from state banks, but Fudecosur has given him this loan more easily and with a much lower interest rate.
