Reinaldo's story

Reinaldo is a farmer who is well-known in the District of Pilas in Pérez Zeledón. He has a farm where he grows corn and beans. However, he wants to secure and improve production. Even though demand for his products is high, competition still exists. For this reason, he is requesting a loan of 500,000 CRC in order to buy compost, herbicides, and insecticides. Reinaldo wants to maintain production and offer a better product to his customers.

He is a member of La Danta Communal Credit Enterprise, S.A., which is one of the 110 member organizations that make up EDESA in Costa Rica.
