Edwin has worked in a pigsty for three years. Since he began this project the results have been good because he has had great success in the community, and the income he has generated has helped him get his family ahead.
What Edwin wants now is to request a loan of 400,00 CRC to buy pigs and feed, which he needs for his pig-raising project. With this he hopes that his small business grows and comes to generate more income to improve his living conditions.
Edwin is part of Empresa de Crédito Comunal de Bancruce, one of the 150 member organizations of EDESA in Costa Rica. As a member it has received a micro-loan that allowed them to grow as small business entrepreneurs.
Desde hace 3 años Edwin se dedica a una porqueriza. Desde que inició este proyecto los resultados han sido buenos, ya que ha tenido una gran aceptación en su comunidad y los ingresos que ha generado lo han ayudado a sacar adelante a su familia.
En estos momentos lo que desea Edwin es solicitar un préstamo por ¢400,000 (cuatrocientos mil colones) para comprar cerdos y alimento, que necesita para su proyecto de porcicultura. Con esto espera que su microempresa crezca y llegue a generar más ingresos para mejorar su condición de vida.

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.
