Heudy's story

Yeudy is a young entrepreneur of 34. He lives with his family in a community called Cartagena, in Guanacaste province. This province's economy is based mainly on livestock raising, though beekeeping and aquaculture are also common.

Yeudy is a disabled person who is only able to get about in a wheelchair because he does not have any movement in his legs. He has a small grocery store which is his only source of income. He helps his family financially and covers his own financial needs through this business.

Yeudy is requesting a loan for 600,000 colones to buy products so that he can further stock his grocery store. He would like, in this way, to improve his business and his quality of life. He would also like to contribute financially toward his family.

Yeudy is a member of the Cartagena Community Loan Company, one of EDESA's 150 member organizations in Costa Rica. He is very happy because he has found an excellent way of obtaining financing so that he can grow his business.
