My name is Jennifer, I live in Upala, Costa Rica and I am the mother of a nine-year-old boy. My work consists of selling catalogue articles and delivering the merchandise to my customers. I walk great distances which is very tiring and not at all productive, since I cannot visit many customers. I am sure I could grow my business by having some means of transportation such as a motorcycle which would allow me to visit more places and people.

My son and I depend on my salary. I need a loan in the amount of 1,000,000 CRC to buy the motorcycle and merchandise in order to provide better service. I am grateful for the opportunity of an easy-term loan given to people who cannot get a state bank loan. Through this type of project we can obtain loans more quickly and with few requirements.

Mi nombre es Jennifer , vivo en Upala , Costa Rica , soy madre de un niño de 9 años, trabajo en comercio vendiendo artículos por catálogo y haciendo entrega a domicilio de la mercadería encargada por mis clientes, recorro grandes distancias a pie lo cual es muy cansado y poco productivo ya que no puedo visitar muchos clientes . Estoy segura de hacer crecer mi negocio con un medio de transporte como lo es una motocicleta ya que puedo abarcar más lugares y visitar más personas.
De mi salario dependemos mi hijo y yo. Necesito un Crédito de un millón de colones (¢ 1.000.000) para adquirir la motocicleta y para comprar más mercadería y dar un mejor servicio, agradezco la facilidad que nos dan para que nosotros los que no tenemos oportunidad de financiamiento con la banca estatal podamos a través de estos proyectos adquirir préstamos con rapidez y pocos requisitos.

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.
