Jebdany's story

Jebdany H. B. is barely 21-years-old. He wants to pay for his sister's school and give his mother a better quality of life. He lives in a community called Hernández de Alajuela, which is characterized by its proximity to the San Juan river. Since a young age he has worked with livestock and now that his father is no longer around he's in charge of taking care of his mother and sister. He needs to improve the quality of his cattle so that he can sell at a higher price. To achieve this he needs 604,000 Costa Rican Colones ($1,200) to buy pasture seed and make improvements to his property. He's a member of the Empresa de Crédito Comunal Unidos por un Desarrollo (United Credit Company for Development), one of the 100 member organizations of EDESA in Costa Rica.
