A loan of $800 helped to purchase merchandise.

Liliam's story

Liliam is an enterprising woman who lives in Cimarrón in Cartago.
She has worked all her life in agriculture, but two years ago she decided to start her own business. That is how she came to open her general store, which has been very beneficial for the people in the community.
Today Liliam needs a loan of 400,000 colones to purchase more merchandise, since she needs to increase the amount and variety of her products because demand is increasing. She is very happy for the support she has received up to now, and she hopes to grow more.
She is a member of the Nuevas Esperanzas de Cimarrón communal bank, one of the 110 communal banks that are members of EDESA in Costa Rica.
