A loan of $625 helped to buy zinc sheets.


Basilio's story

Basilio V. F. is a neighbor of Ostional, located in Guanacaste. He has dedicated his entire life to growing basic grains.


For several months now, he has not been able to sleep peacefully, as the roof of his house is in very poor condition. His earnings are barely enough to cover his daily expenses and support his family. This is why he needs a loan of 300,000 Costa Rican Colones (CRC) to buy zinc sheets for the roof and other necessary materials.


Basilio hopes to improve his quality of life in order to continue producing for his family.


He is a member of Empresa de Crédito Apoyo Comunal Ostional, one of EDESA’s 110 member organizations in Costa Rica.
