Sergio Alberto's story

Sergio Alberto is married. He is 26 years old, and lives with his wife and daughter, who are his highest priority.

With the loan, he is going to buy inputs such as compost, insecticides, and herbicides necessary to plant and tend to his crops. He has made his living in this way for many years now, and hopes to be able to maintain his plantations in good condition in order to get better earnings this year, since the prices are staying very good.

He hopes to be able to offer his family a better quality of life and at the same time, generate better finances for his home.

This is the first loan that he has received from FUDECOSUR. He hadn't had loans before in state banks, but FUDECOSUR has provided him with the loan with greater ease and much lower interest rates.
