Diego's story

Diego is a 23-year-old gentleman who lives with his family in a community called La Danta, which is located in Concepción de Pilas, Puntarenas, in the southern part of Costa Rica. The local economy is based on agricultural activities, such as livestock breeding and the cultivation of crops such as tubers, coffee, corn, and beans.


Diego is requesting a loan of 600,000 CRC so that he can plant beans and maintain his crop. In order to do this, he will buy compost and fungicides to protect his crops from pests and fungi that could affect them as they develop and impact production. Thanks to his loan, Diego will be able to continue developing his business and producing crops. His work enables him to support his family.


Like many other farmers in the area, Diego is a member of the Communal Credit Enterprise of La Danta, S.A., one of the 150 Communal Bank throughout Costa Rica.
