A loan of $1,025 helped minibus repairs.


Ronald's story

Ronald Álvarez is a well-known music teacher in the community of Alajuela. In addition, Ronald has his own business that he started a long time ago using a small minibus for transporting students in the community. Now he has three minibuses, but one of the vehicles needs an engine overhaul. For this reason he needs a loan of 500,000 CRC to pay for the repairs so that he can continue serving the community.

Ronald expects to maintain his business with the loan so that he can later buy another minibus. He is a member of the Communal Enterprise of Successful Women in Trinchera de Pital, one of the 100 member organizations that make up EDESA in Costa Rica.
