A loan of $1,025 helped to buy farming supplies.

Santos's story

Santos Rogué B. lives in Pilas de Pérez Zeledón and has been a farmer all his life. He has a small farm where he wants to plant basic grains, specifically corn and beans.

But he needs a ₡500 000 (five-hundred thousand colones) to buy farming supplies necessary to plant the tubers. He hopes to take advantage of this season and increase his income for his family’s benefit.

He is a member of the La Danta S.A. communal bank, one of EDESA’s 110 social enterprises in Costa Rica.
