Sandra is the mother of three children who are students in primary and secondary school. She wants to contribute to the family income, as the expenses are very great. She buys cattle for breeding and to get calves of greater quality, then she fattens them and sells them at cattle markets.
Sandra is applying for a loan of 1,000,000 colons, so that she can buy cattle to raise, and carry out this whole process.

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.
