Carolina lives with her family in the north of Costa Rica. In order to help support her family, she decided one year ago to sell clothing out of her home. This activity has been very well-received in her community. The demand for her products has increased during this season, and she needs to buy merchandise in order to fulfill her customers' orders.
For this reason, she is seeking a loan of one million and forty colones, which she hopes will help her to reach her goals.

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.
