Keilyn's story

Keylin is a youth of 20 years who lives with her husband and her baby of eight months in a community in the South of Costa Rica, located in Concepción de Pilas, Puntarenas also called La Danta. Here, the local economy is based in agricultural activities, focusing on the planting of tubers, coffee, corn, beans, and livestock breeding.

She plants her lands to help her husband with the household expenses, and she produces beans and corn. She is well acquainted with this work, as she comes from a family of farmers.

This type of work is very common in this area, as much for men as for women. Keylin is asking for a loan of 600,000 Colons (¢ 600.000.00) to buy soil developing fertilizers and nutritive fertilizers, essential for the development of the crops, and fungicides to protect her crops during the growth process until the harvest. In this way, she will be able to offer the consumers an excellent product of very good quality.

Her goal is to move forward economically, improving her house and helping with the household expenses. Keylin is one of the members involved with the Empresa de Crédito Comunal de la Danta S.A, one of the 150 communal credit institutions in Costa Rica, and this is her second loan.
