Jenny works raising cattle that she fattens up to then sells in livestock and cattle markets and to produce milk that’s then used to make dairy products like custard, butter, cheese, etc. She works hard to provide for her son’s daily needs and for his schooling because she hopes he’ll become a professional in the future.

She’s asking for a loan of one-million colones (¢1.000.000) to buy two dairy cows to increase milk production and make a larger amount of dairy products thus increasing her profits. She’s grateful for this project and to the local communal bank for the opportunity it gives her to reach her and her son’s dreams.

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.
