A loan of $700 helped cloth and sewing machines.

Agueda's story

Agueda N. N. is a future micro-entrepreneur from the community of Canalete in Alajuela.

She is going to be a part of a group of women forming the micro-business, “Dream creations,” which will make bed linen, like quilts, sheets, bedclothes, pillows and bedroom curtains. Agueda assures us that she will be able to bring all her experience from working in a textile factory.

To get started each of them must contribute their share, which is why Agueda needs a 350,000 CRC loan to buy mainly materials, cloth, and sewing machines.

She is a member of the Canalete Communal Credit Company, one of EDESA’s 100 member organisations in Costa Rica.
