A loan of $1,200 helped to buy handicrafts and clothes to sell.

Leyla's story

Leyla López M. is an excellent saleswoman. She has been selling for over 15 years. Although she sells everything, she has been selling handicrafts for two years. This has generated a sufficient source of income for her to support her family.

However, she does not sell more due to the lack of capital. That is why Leyla wants ₡600 000 (six hundred thousand colones) to buy more handicrafts, paintings, clothes, and fabrics to sell.

She is a member of the Empresa de Crédito Comunal Santa Fe. It is one of the 100 member organizations of EDESA in Costa Rica.
