I think this is my big opportunity to make it. I thank this project of local loans for making our dreams become a reality.
Soy Javier vivo en la zona rural de San Carlos, Costa Rica, anhelo terminar mi casa, quiero que mi esposa y mis hijos habiten en una vivienda digna, me he esforzado para lograrlo, sin embargo necesito un préstamo por un millón de colones (¢1.000.000) para concluirla, el cual usaré para comprar cemento, zinc, perlin y otros materiales . Creo que esta es mi gran oportunidad de lograrlo. Agradezco a este proyecto de crédito local el hacer nuestros sueños una realidad.
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.
About Housing Loans
Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
