Yisenia Maria's story

Yisenia, 28, lives with her husband and children. She’s from a community located on the south Pacific coast of Costa Rica, called La Palma de Puerto Jiménez, in Puntarenas Province. This is an area that’s grown commercially and as a port. It’s very developed because it has beautiful beaches in its surroundings. Fishing, agriculture and livestock raising are the most prevalent activities. This community is full of customs and activities.

It’s been several years now that Yisenia has been intending to do some home improvements and since she joined this firm results have been good in that she’s been well received in her community and income generated has helped her support her family.

At present, what Yisenia wants is to request a ¢535,000 (five-hundred thirty-five thousand colones) loan to buy materials she needs to build a ceiling in her house. She hopes to have a proper home for her family and to generate more income to improve her living conditions.

Yisenia is a member of the “Raíces Capitales S.A. “ communal bank and she says that she’s very grateful for the opportunities to access credit it’s providing her to carry out her life projects.
