Ananias is a farmer with many years experience. He is concerned that his coffee harvest, which he gathers each year, should be of good quality and abundant. For this reason, he fertilizes the land well and he dispenses all the necessary agricultural inputs to assure that.

The sowing currently underway, now requires these inputs. For that reason, Ananias is requesting a loan of 600,000 colons to purchase products such as manure, insecticides, and anti-plague applications, among other items.

In this manner, Ananias intends to maintain the quality and quantity of his harvest.

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.
