Diego's story

Diego is a 23-year-old gentleman who lives with his family in a small community in southern Costa Rica called La Danta, which is located in Concepción de Pilas, Puntarenas. The local economy is based on agricultural activities such as growing tubers, coffee, corn, beans, as well as raising cattle.

Diego is requesting a loan in the amount of 500,000 CRC for planting beans and providing care for his crops. He will buy compost and fungicides in order to protect his crops against pests and fungus that could impact production while the crops are developing. Thanks to this loan, Diego can continue developing his business and planting these products. His work is what enables him to sustain his family.

Diego, like many other farmers, is a member of La Danta Communal Credit Enterprise, S.A., one of the 150 credit organizations in Costa Rica.
