Rolando is a hard-working man. Every morning he walks many kilometers to go to his farm to plant. However, this leaves him little time to share with his family and to maximize harvesting time. This is why he is asking for a loan of one million colons (1,000.000) to purchase a motorcycle so he can travel to his farm faster and make the most of his time. This will allow him to harvest more and have a better quality of life.

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.
