A loan of $225 helped buy ceramic floor tiles.


Sandra's story

Sandra lives in the rural community of Ostional in Guanacaste.

She is a woman who is a fighter, and who has been able to get her family ahead on her own. Where she works, she barely makes enough to survive. This is why she has not been able to fix the floor of her house.

For this reason, she needs a loan of ₡100 000 (a hundred thousand colones) to buy the ceramics she needs for her house. She is very happy because at last she will fix her little house.

She is a member of the Ostional Cooperative Bank, one of the 110 social credit enterprises of EDESA in Costa Rica.
