Costa Rica En Desarrollo Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy materials and replace the floor of her business.

Costa Rica En Desarrollo Group's story

Eldrith is a persistent, joyful woman who above all, loves her family. She has 5 children who are all grown. The youngest is a 16-year-old woman who lives with them.

Five years ago, she started her own cacao farm along with her husband. Now, she has opened a business selling breakfast and lunch. She gets up very early to prepare the food, and already has loyal customers who always order from her. Generally they are from the area and work.

In this case, she is requesting a loan to buy materials and replace the floor in her business. Eldrith has her business selling food in front of her house, and would like to renovate to give it a better appearance, and so that her customers do not get dirty, since the floor is currently earthen and she would like to lay cement.

Her greatest dream is to keep growing and move forward hand in hand with her family.
