Actualmente Yesenia está solicitando un microcrédito de 400,000.00 (cuatrocientos mil colones), para la compra de los ingredientes o materia prima para su panadería, ya que quiere darles a sus clientes el mejor calidad de producto, necesita solventar y tener otro ingreso económico para su hogar.

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.
