A loan of $625 helped to purchase industrial tools..


Sergio's story

Sergio A. lives in the same neighborhood as Trinchera de Pital in Alajuela. He is known to be a very enterprising person.

Several years ago he decided to set up his own business - a repair shop.

His business has been a success and even though he doesn't have the tools or the space that he needs, his shop has been enough to satisfy the demand he currently observes.

He requests a loan of 300 000 (three hundred thousand colones) to purchase more tools for his shop, with the goal of providing his clients with better service. He is a member of the communal bank named Mujeres al Exito de la Trinchera de Pital, one of the 100 member organizations of Edesa (Kiva Field Partner) in Costa Rica.
