Doris has a small variety store. She sells all sorts of products related to her business and has received a very favorable response from her neighbors. Her micro company has helped her family's living conditions change little by little. That is why she wants to expand and further supply her business. Even though she is just starting out in this business she feels that she can make it grow.
She currently requires a 500.000 colon loan to purchase merchandise, since she started her business only three months ago. This activity allows her to contribute to covering the family's basic expenses as well as her own. Her desire is to make her company bigger and to increase her customer base.
Doris is a member of the community bank San Cristóbal Norte (SACRIN), one of EDESA's 110 partner organizations in Costa Rica.

More information about this loan
As a small and relatively young MFI located in Costa Rica, EDESA has difficulty attracting other sources of capital. Many other microfinance funders do not work in Costa Rica, because overall the country is too rich. However, organizations such as EDESA work with extremely marginalized populations in Costa Rica that really need the access to capital that EDESA provides. By funding EDESA, Kiva lenders are allowing the organization to grow and reach more people than they otherwise would be able to reach.
