A loan of $1,200 helped to buy construction material and imported clothing.


Olga's story

Olga Lucia M. is a hardworking businesswoman. Although alone, she has managed to help her children get ahead. She now wants to expand her small business selling imported clothing which she began a short while ago. It’s been very successful, but she now needs a loan to open a small store inside her house and buy more merchandise.

Olga is asking for 594,000 colones to buy construction material and merchandise. In the future she would like to import clothing directly from the USA. She is a member of the San Francisco de la Palmera community bank, one of the 100 businesses which are members of EDESA.
