A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase chicks and to remodel her store.


Dania's story

Dania F. R. was tired of traveling from village to village in search for work. So she decided to start her own business raising chickens. She raises chickens for sale and now instead of going to look for work she goes to all the various communities to sell eggs and meat. Cartagena de Guanacaste is a region known for its Costa-Rican folklore and for the best beaches in the country. She requests a loan in the amount of 600,000 (six hundred thousand colones) to purchase more chicks and to remodel her store. This will translate into an improvement in quality of life for her family. She is a new member of the Cartagena community bank, one of the 100 member organizations of Edesa (Kiva Field Partner) in Costa Rica.
