Alejandra's story

Alejandra L. M. would like to guarantee a better quality of life for her family, taking advantage of her excellent skills as a saleswoman. She has been selling underwear and casual clothes for two years. Her business has been doing well but she hasn't been able to meet demand. For this reason, she needs 600,000 colones to buy more clothes to sell.

Alejandra is a member of the 'Empresa de Crédito Comunal Manantial de Santa Fe' (Manantial de Santa Fe community credit company) which is one of 100 organizations that are EDESA partners in Costa Rica.
