Johnny's story

Johnny is a 36-year-old man that lives with his family in an area of the south end of Costa Rica in Concepción de Pilas, Puntarenas. The local economy is based on farming, stockbreeding, and mainly the sowing of tubers, coffee, corn, beans, and livestock.

Johnny is asking for a loan of 200,000 colones to buy fungicides and insecticides to maintain the sowing of corn and protect his crop since this is a sustainable and reliable alternative.

With this loan, Johnny can avoid that fungus will appear on his crops and thus offer quality products to his customers. Johnny is a member of the “Empresa de Credito Comunal de la Danta S.A.” (Business of Community Credit of Danta, S.A.), one of the 150 community banks in Costa Rica.
