Hi, my name is Oscar and I live in Costa Rica. I am a farmer and very enterprising person with a great desire for improving my lifestyle. I plant to buy seeds to plant maize and beans; and in the development process I need to provide maintenance through fungicides, insecticides and fertilizers. To buy these supplies and the seeds, I am requesting a loan in the amount of 1,000,000 CRC. Here in the southern part of the country where I live, most of us are farmers and depend on this activity to support our families, which in my case includes my wife and small daughter. With your help and through this project, I hope to be able to get ahead. This is my opportunity to obtain a loan with manageable payment terms in accordance with our income.

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.
