Jorge is a farmer and is thirty-four years old. He lives with his wife and two children in the southern part of Costa Rica, where he specializes in growing root vegetables, coffee, corn, beans, and livestock. Jorge has been developing his work in growing corn and beans for several years; this generates a sole source of income for his family.

Therefore, he wishes to expand more in terms of a planting area, and for this he needs a loan of one million colones to buy corn and bean seeds, and to thereby continue the production of these crops.

Jorge says he is very thankful for this means of acquiring rapid financing with accessible payments for hardworking people that want to better themselves.

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.
