José Antonio
José Antonio makes his living doing construction and repair jobs for houses. He already has a significant number of customers that request his services in this area.

José believes that to maintain and increase his clientele, in addition to offering them good service, it's necessary to obtain better and modern construction tools, little by little. At this time, he is in urgent need of a soldering machine, since he has several jobs pending that require exactly this tool to be completed. This is why he is applying for a credit of five hundred thousand colones (¢500,000).

José says that the only family income is his, since his children are still very small. That is why he works hard to provide quality service to his customers.

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.
