A loan of $1,000 helped extend the laundry room.

Félix Angel's story

46 year old Félix lives with his wife and children in a community called San Carlos that is in the second province of Costa Rica, Alajuela. It is an area that is first in the nation for its coffee and sugar cane production. It also produces staple grains (rice, beans, corn), fruit, vegetables, root vegetables, and salad greens. The most important airport in the country, Aeropuerto Internacional Juan Santamaría, is also in this province.
Félix has been wanting to make some changes to his house for a number of years, as he currently holds part of the property he inherited from his parents.
Currently, Félix is requesting a micro loan of $1,000 to buy construction materials to fix the infrastructure of his home and extend the laundry room. He hopes that this will bring his family a better quality of life as his wish is to lead a quieter life so that his children can be more comfortable and have a decent roof over their heads.
Félix is a member of the community bank of San Francisco, one of the 150 member organizations of EDESA in Costa Rica. He will continue to grow personally and economically as well as participating actively in the credit organization in his community.
