Eduardo's story

Eduardo is a young man, 25 years old, who lives with his family in a community called La Danta in the south of Costa Rica, located in Concepción de Pilas, Puntarenas. The local economy is based on agricultural activities, mainly the growing and raising of potatoes, coffee, corn, beans and livestock.

Eduardo is asking for a loan of 1,040,000 Colones in order to buy corn and bean seeds, insecticide, and fungicide in order to protect his crops from pests and fungi that could affect production. Thanks to this loan he will be able to continue planting his crops, which allows him to support his family.

Like many other farmers in this region, he belongs to the Empresa de Crédito Comunal de la Danta S.A, one of 150 credit cooperatives in Costa Rica.
