Dionisio's story

Dionisio is a 43-year-old man who lives with his family in a community in the southern zone of Costa Rica, located in Concepción de Pilas, Puntarenas. The local economy is based on agriculture, mainly livestock and the harvesting of tubers, coffee, corn, and beans.
Dionisio is requesting a loan of ₡1,000,000 (one million colones) for the purchase of ñampí [a tuber] seeds and insecticides. He will also use the loan to pay labourers, as he needs help with production and maintenance (applying fertilizer and fungicides to protect the crops). Through his vigilant care of his developing crops, he will be able to offer quality products to his customers and reach his sales goal. Furthermore, he will be able to meet his obligations and payments in order to get his family ahead.
Dionisio is a member of the Empresa de Crédito Comunal denla Danta S.A, one of the 150 community credit enterprises in Costa Rica.
