María De Los Angeles
Maria is a young women that began the development of her pig business with her first loan that she received from the foundation for women over a year ago. She lives in a rural community in Cartago, El Guarco, where the sources of salaried work are few. Through the development of small subsistence activities, she is permitted to have earnings and to support the expenses of her family. She lives with her spouse and her two children who are very young.

To increase her earnings, she is completing a therapeutic massage class and she wants to grow her small pig farm. Because of this she seeks a new loan from the foundation. She is like all of our women--she tends to her house and she also cares for her pigs, cleaning the pig farm two times a day, in the morning and in the evening. For her, the power to count on financial support is an opportunity to grow and progress, to improve her economic condition and to give a better future to her children.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

In Costa Rica, funding for microfinance institutions is hard to come by, and many institutions find themselves having difficulty growing and reaching all the demand for loans that exist. Kiva works with Fundacion Mujer because it attends a very marginalized population in Costa Rica, with a specific focus on women. In addition to the loan, Fundacion Mujer provides specialized training programs for their borrowers on everything from computer classes to salon training. Because of the difficulty in obtaining capital in Costa Rica, Fundacion Mujer cannot serve all the women that need loans. Therefore Kiva plays a unique role in helping Fundacion Mujer grow its portfolio and reach borrowers it otherwise would not be able to.
