Luis's story

Luis M. G. is a successful small businessowner from La Palma in Puerto Jimenez. His business is a general store called "Monterrey".

He started the business 2 years ago, and says it has been a complete success, but now it is time to take the next step as a businessman. Don Luis is therefore seeking a loan of 400,000 colones for the purchase of more products, that will permit him to enlarge and improve his business.

He is a member of the Raíces Capitales communal bank, one of over 100 such organisations associated with [the field partner] EDESA.
