A loan of $725 helped to buy a refrigerator.


Estela Piedad's story

Señora Estela is a native of the Colonia San Carlos neighborhood about 15 kilometers from San Jose. She works, including at the Alasitas Festival, selling sucumbe, the traditional beverage of the area. She lives with Señor Jorge who is a bricklayer. They have one young son.

With the money from this loan Estela will buy a refrigerator to conserve her products and the supplies she uses to make the sucumbes. She is a responsible person and is grateful to the institution for the economic assistance it has provided to help her have a better quality of life and to continue working to improve her situation.
