A loan of $1,200 helped to buy a brush cutter.


William's story

William P. is 32 years old, and wants to have his own lawn service company.

This is Canalate de Alajuela, a community characterized by the entrepreneurial spirit of its women, since there are a number of organizations led by them, as well as companies.

For a number of years, William has been cutting lawns in his community. Now his customer base is constantly increasing, and for this reason he needs 604,000 colones to buy a new brush cutter and to fix the equipment he already has.

He says that his goal is to create a company where he could have other people working and in this way provide service to more customers.

He is a member of the Canalete community bank, one of the 100 member organizations of EDESA in Costa Rica. This will be his second loan.
