My name is Nidia and I live in the southern part of Costa Rica. I am married and have two children in middle school. For several years I have been involved in farming, specifically growing maize. Through this activity I help my husband cover household expenses. I am requesting a loan in the amount of 1,035,000 CRC to buy insecticides, fungicides and fertilizer to help my crops during the growing stage. My hope is that my husband and I can serve as examples of effort and hard work for our children. Thank you for this loan opportunity.

Additional Information

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.
