With this loan he hopes to buy bean seeds that are in good condition and that have traits that mean the plants will develop well, as well as fertilizers and other products to apply during planting in order for the seeds to germinate well. He also wants to pay for workers to help prepare the land for planting and to apply the products, as well as help with the farm once the plants are growing, so that he can be assured to have the work go well. He hopes to take advantage of the good climate and soil conditions in his area for this crop and to put into practice various years of experience in handling staple foods. He also hopes to buy the best quality products so that his farm will be healthy and well developed in addition to providing a good crop and producing well in the short term. With the earnings from the harvest he hopes to have he would like to improve his family's well-being and schooling, accomplish some things for his family, and continue investing in his farm. This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR (Kiva Field Partner). He has never gotten any other loans from national banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered him this loan with greater ease and lower interest rates.
