A loan of $1,025 helped to buy small coffee plants.

Yolán's story

Yolán is a 34-year-old farmer. He lives with his wife and 3-year-old son in of the south zone of Costa Rica, located in Concepción de Pilas, Puntarenas. The local economy is based on farming activities, mainly the sowing of tubers, coffee, corn, beans, and livestock breeding, and other products.

For several years Yolán has developed the sowing of coffee, which has allowed him to have a steady income. He desires to expand his sowing and therefore needs a loan of 500,000 colones to buy small coffee plants to accomplish the production of the product and provide seeds to other producers.

Yolán is a member of the “Empresa de Credito Comunal de la Danta S.A.” (Business of Community Credit of Danta, S.A.). He is very grateful for the loan as a means of quick access to financing on credit available to hard working people who want to get ahead.
