Greivin, an enterprising man, is 23 years old, married and lives with his wife and two children. Currently, he has asked for a loan with the desire to buy seedlings and supplies, like fertilizer and fumigators. He wishes to provide care to the coffee plants with the purpose of keeping them in good condition during their growth in order to get a high quality product.

The only constraint this gentleman has is the lack of money for continuing to grow. Since he depends on this work to get ahead in life he has asked for a loan, and this is the first loan that he has received from FUDECOSUR. He does not have other loans with state banks, but FUDECOSUR offered him the loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

FUDECOSUR works in one of the poorest regions of Costa Rica, where microfinance institutions (MFIs) are scarce or have a hard time keeping up with demand for small loans. By providing mostly agricultural loans, FUDECOSUR reaches rural borrowers that many MFIs consider to be too risky. However, this has also made it more difficult for the organization to find stable sources of capital to lend. Kiva's flexible, risk-tolerant capital plays a critical role in helping FUDECOSUR grow its portfolio and support even more borrowers.


The Foundation for the Development of Southern Communities (FUDECOSUR) is dedicated to economically empowering its clients by providing credit and training programs that help improve living conditions for micro-entrepreneurs and their children across Southern Costa Rica.
