A loan of $650 helped to improve his home.


Victoriano Reynolds's story

Victoriano is better known in his area by his second name, Reynolds. He is 68 and lives with his family in a village in the Hatillo district, an urban and residential zone. However, it has a lot of businesses, particularly in the commercial centers. Located there are many furniture stores, tortilla stores, bakeries, bookstores, auto shops and auto dealers, gas stations, dentists, pharmacies, doctors’ offices, bars, restaurants, stores and printers. Some months ago Victoriano had as a project to make some changes in his house, but he hasn’t been able to accomplish them because he has had financial problems. That is, it is very difficult for him to do these projects with his own money. That is the reason that Victoriano is requesting a loan of 325,000 (three hundred and twenty-five thousand colons) to buy construction materials for improving his home and giving his family a better quality of life. Victoriano is a member of Hatillo communal bank, one of the 110 businesses that is part of EDESA in Costa Rica. He tells us that this is his second loan and he is very happy and appreciative with the bank for the help it has offered.
