Anaceli's story

Anaceli is 44 years old and lives in a community called Osa, in Puntarenas province. This community is in a rural area which attracts a lot of visitors because of its beaches. The main business activities in this area are related to tourism, farming and livestock raising. The local economy is based on farming and livestock raising. Common crops are tubers, coffee, corn and beans, and cattle raising is common too.

Anaceli has been needing to make some repairs to her home for several months. She has not carried out this work because her income will not stretch far enough. However, she would like her family to have a decent and safe home.

Anaceli is requesting a loan for 550,000 colones to buy building supplies and to pay workmen to fix her home's windows and doors.

Anaceli is a member of the Golfo Dulce Ltd. community loan company. This is one of 150 member organizations of EDESA. This will be Anaceli's second loan. She is very grateful for the opportunity she is being given to access loans as it allows her to carry out her projects.
