Johnny is a 36-year-old man that lives with his family in an area of the south end of Costa Rica in Concepción de Pilas, Puntarenas. The local economy is based on farming, stockbreeding, and mainly the sowing of tubers, coffee, corn, beans, and livestock.

Johnny is asking for a loan of 200,000 colones to buy fungicides and insecticides to maintain the sowing of corn and protect his crop since this is a sustainable and reliable alternative.

With this loan, Johnny can avoid that fungus will appear on his crops and thus offer quality products to his customers. Johnny is a member of the “Empresa de Credito Comunal de la Danta S.A.” (Business of Community Credit of Danta, S.A.), one of the 150 community banks 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.
