A loan of $800 helped to buy building materials and supplies.

Faustina's story

Faustina, 64, lives with her family in a community in Hatillo district that’s mostly urban and residential. However, it’s the object of growing commercial activity concentrated primarily in the commercial centers. A large number of furniture stores, tortilla shops, bakeries, bookstores, metal and auto shops, gas stations, dental offices, pharmacies, medical offices, bars, restaurants, stores and print shops have located there.

Faustina’s goal is to be able to make some home improvements but she’s not been able to because of economic problems which means that it’s very difficult for her to do the project with her own financing.

Because of this Faustina is asking for a 400,000 colones loan to buy building materials and supplies to improve her home and provide a better quality of life for her family.

Faustina is a member of the Hatillo communal bank one of EDESA’s 150 communal banks in Costa Rica. This is her first loan with the firm and she gives thanks for all the help she’s been given.
