Victorino's story

Victorino is 65 years old and lives with his wife and son in Fuente, province of Cartago. Here, the great Reventazón River is the main drainage system in the area, with volcanic and alluvial soil. Cartago is the population center, and agriculture and livestock are the main sources of income. Victorino has made a living doing soldering work inside and outside his community for a number of years, and the money he earns goes toward household expenses. Currently he is requesting a loan to purchase work tools so he can offer a better service to his customers and increase his income. Victorino is a member of Empresa de Crédito Comunal de Fuente Agrícola, one of the 150 member organizations of EDESA in Costa Rica.
