A loan of $1,025 helped to grow ñampi, a tropical vegetable used for its thickened stems.


Carlos's story

Carlos H. comes from the Pilas community in Pérez Zeledón, and he is known for being a very hardworking farmer.

At this time, he would like to obtain a 500,000 CRC loan so that he can plant 20 hectares of ñampi, a tropical vegetable used for its thickened stems. For this, he needs both the necessary supplies and labor. This is the best time of the year to cultivate, which is why he would like to take advantage so that he can improve both his income and his children's quality of life. He is a member of Crédito Comunal La Danta S.A., one of the 110 organizations that have a partnership with EDESA in Costa Rica.
