A loan of $800 helped to buy building tools.


Eduardo's story

Eduardo is from the community of La Trinchera. He is known as being one of the best builders in his area.

Eduardo has been in the building trade all his life and now his main work tools have become very worn. For this reason, he is requesting a loan for 200,000 colones to buy tools so that he can continue in his work and provide his customers with a better service. He would like to improve his working conditions and, of course, improve his income.

Eduardo is a member of the La Trinchera community loan company, one of EDESA's 110 member companies in Costa Rica.
