Jose's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy banana seeds.

Jose's story

José lives in the community of Cimarrón de Cartago. He is a very likeable person who’s known for his sociability and leadership. José farms basic grains mainly. But he’s decided to try a new product in the zone. Because of this he needs a ₡594000 (five-hundred ninety-four thousand colones) loan to buy banana seeds to start planting bananas on his farm. He is sure that the harvest will be good because of the expected weather and even more so because of current market prices. He’s a member of the “Nuevas Esperanzas para Cimarrón” (New Hopes for Cimarrón) communal bank, one of EDESA’s 110 social enterprises in Costa Rica.
