Now he has almost all of the tools that he needs, except he still lacks an industrial grade shop vacuum. For this reason, he is requesting a loan of 500,000 Costa Rican colones, so that he can buy this equipment to use in his business.

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.
