A loan of $1,025 helped to buy calves.


Gilberto's story

Gilberto L. Martínez lives in Pérez Zeledón, is 43 years old and is known for being a lover of livestock. A little while ago, Gilberto bought four hectares of grass with the goal of having his own livestock. That is why he needs a loan of ₡500 000 (five-hundred thousand colones) to purchase calves to fatten for his farm.

He is a member of the loan company Bancruce Communal Bank, which is one of the 110 member companies of EDESA in Costa Rica.
