Alyeri B. Lopez worked for 8 years in commercial stores, but her leadership qualities and her determination to succeed led her to start up her own clothing store 3 months ago.

At 27, with no one to assist her except her 2 children, Alyeri has managed to create her own business. But she now realizes that she needs a small loan to improve her store and make her small business grow. For this reason she needs 600,000 colones to buy clothing and general merchandise, so that she can have a greater variety of goods to sell in her store.

She is a member of the communal bank "Manantial de Santa Fe," which is one of the 100 groups that are members of EDESA 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.
