Danny F. Q. is 19 years old, single, and he lives with his parents and siblings. He plans on purchasing tools and machines to help him carry out his construction jobs. He has various years working in the field and he has a few tools but he is missing some important ones, which is why he wants to buy them. His goal is to provide good finishes to his projects and to be more competitive in his work by increasing efficiency. Another one of his goals is to generate more income to keep investing and to help his family with the daily expenses.

It is the first loan he has received from Fudecosur (Kiva Field Partner). He has not had other previous loans with state banks, but Fudecosur has provided him with a loan with greater ease and the interest rate is much lower.

More information about this loan

FUDECOSUR works in one of the poorest regions of Costa Rica, where microfinance institutions (MFIs) are scarce or have a hard time keeping up with demand for small loans. By providing mostly agricultural loans, FUDECOSUR reaches rural borrowers that many MFIs consider to be too risky. However, this has also made it more difficult for the organization to find stable sources of capital to lend. Kiva's flexible, risk-tolerant capital plays a critical role in helping FUDECOSUR grow its portfolio and support even more borrowers.


The Foundation for the Development of Southern Communities (FUDECOSUR) is dedicated to economically empowering its clients by providing credit and training programs that help improve living conditions for micro-entrepreneurs and their children across Southern Costa Rica.
