Alvaro's story

Álvaro is a very well-known member of the community of la Garita de Guanacaste.
Since he was a child, he dreamt of running his own upholstery workshop, and recently he has succeeded in making his dream come true: today, he is the owner of one of the most important companies of his community.
His upholstery workshop has been very successful, and for this reason he needs to expand his shop and improve his service even more. This is why he is requesting a loan of 500000 CRC to buy pieces of foam, fabric for armchairs, nails and other materials he needs for his shop.
He is very happy because he engages in this activity with his family, which allows him to spend more time with them.
Álvaro is a member of Empresa de Crédito Comunal La Garita, one of the 110 companies associated with EDESA in Costa Rica.
