A loan of $700 helped buy fabric and sewing machines.

Maritza's story

Maritza D. L. is a future small businesswoman in the Canalete community of Alajuela.

She is going to be part of a group of women who make up the micro business “Creaciones de ensueño” (Creations of dreams) which consists of making bed linens including comforters, sheets, blankets, pillos and curtains for bedrooms.

To begin each day one of the group needs to take her part, and so Maritza needs a loan of ₡350 000 to buy material, fabric, and sewing machines.

She is a member of the Empresa de Crédito Comunal Canalete, one of the 100 member organizations of EDESA in Costa Rica.
