Flory's story

Flory D. Gutiérrez lives in Ostional community, in Guanacaste. Ever since she was a little girl, Flory always enjoyed looking after her family's hens. Nowadays, this is her business and it has allowed her to get ahead in life and support her children.

Flory's enterprising spirit has allowed her to grow as a small businesswoman. However, a lack of investment has prevented her from growing any further. For this reason, she needs a loan for 500,000 colones, so that she can buy building supplies, animal feed and more hens. She hopes that this loan will help jump start her business so that she can make more income. Flory is a member of the company 'Apoyo Comunal Ostional Ltd.', one of 100 credit companies who are members of EDESA.
