Perfecto's story

Perfecto is a 71-year-old man. He lives with his wife and his mother, who is of an advanced age, in a community called Osa, which is located in Caña Blanca in the province of Puntarenas. This community is a much-visited rural area known for its beautiful beaches and wildlife. The main economic activities here are tourism and agriculture.
Perfecto says that he is the sole economic support for his family. He buys calves and fattens them up until they are ready to sell in the local cattle market. He is currently requesting a loan of a million colones (c1,000,000) in order to buy calves and begin the process of fattening them up and selling them for a good price.
Perfecto is a member of the Communal Credit Business of Caña Blanca, one of the 150 member organizations of EDESA in Costa Rica. Thanks to the organization and the ease of obtaining credit, he is able to improve his quality of life.
