A loan of $1,200 helped to buy cattle.


Jordan's story

Jordán H. Briseño is a young man of twenty-three years who lives with his wife and five children in the community of Hernández, which is in the province of Alajuela. Since he was young he has earned his living producing and selling milk.

Through his work Jordán has succeeded in bringing success to his whole family. However, he has to increase milk production because two of his children are about to start school and he needs money to pay for it, so he is seeking a loan for 599,000 colones to buy two young milk cows.

Jordán belongs to Empresa de Crédito Comunal Unidos por un Desarrollo [United for Development Municipal Credit Enterprise], one of EDESA's one hundred organizations in Costa Rica. This will be his second loan and he is very excited about the opportunity this type of organization provides.
