Ramon's story

Ramón P. R. would like to become the number one clothes seller in Canalete community, in Alajuela. Several years ago, Ramón decided to set up his own small business selling clothes. He sells all sorts of clothes which he delivers to people's homes. Ramón has a lot of interest in his products and his customers are increasingly demanding. He needs a loan for 598,000 colones in order to vary the range of clothes that he offers, so that he can improve his business. Ramón is happy because this kind of loan helps encourage people to improve themselves. Ramón is a member of the Canalete Communal Loan Company, one of EDESA's 100 member organizations in Costa Rica.
