A loan of $2,100 helped to buy two dairy cows.


Alciria's story

Here is Alciria’s story:

“My name is Alciria. I am from Costa Rica and the mother of a teenager who is 14. I live in a rural area that is 45 kilometers outside of the capital. I raise cattle for fattening and then sell them at the livestock fairs. I also own dairy cows and use the milk to make sour cream, butter, cheese, and other products.

I work hard so that I can provide for my son’s daily needs and his education. I want him to become a professional in the future. I am requesting a loan of 1,035,000 CRC so that I can buy two dairy cows in order to increase milk production and generate more earnings.

I am grateful for having my business and to my local Communal Bank for giving me the opportunity to fulfill my dreams and those of my son.”
