Agueda N. N. is a future micro-entrepreneur from the community of Canalete in Alajuela.

She is going to be a part of a group of women forming the micro-business, “Dream creations,” which will make bed linen, like quilts, sheets, bedclothes, pillows and bedroom curtains. Agueda assures us that she will be able to bring all her experience from working in a textile factory.

To get started each of them must contribute their share, which is why Agueda needs a 350,000 CRC loan to buy mainly materials, cloth, and sewing machines.

She is a member of the Canalete Communal Credit Company, one of EDESA’s 100 member organisations in Costa Rica.

More information about this loan

As a small and relatively young MFI located in Costa Rica, EDESA has difficulty attracting other sources of capital. Many other microfinance funders do not work in Costa Rica, because overall the country is too rich. However, organizations such as EDESA work with extremely marginalized populations in Costa Rica that really need the access to capital that EDESA provides. By funding EDESA, Kiva lenders are allowing the organization to grow and reach more people than they otherwise would be able to reach.
