A loan of $925 helped to care for the coffee crop.

Yerelin Carolina's story

Yerelin Carolina, age 22, is single. She lives with her parents and siblings, who are her greatest priority. With her loan she plans to buy fertilizer and fungicides and to pay for the labor in caring for the coffee. She will also buy some nursery plants to re-seed.

Her objective for doing this is to increase the density of the plants in the area. She will also take advantage of the ground’s good fertility, the climate conditions, and other factors that favor the coffee crop. With these crop improvements, she hopes to get a little profit. This way she will improve her family’s living conditions. She will also invest a little more in the crop area and also fulfill some goals.

This is the first loan she has received from FUDECOSUR. She has not had any other loans from state banks. FUDECOSUR has provided a loan with easier terms and a much lower interest rate.
