Yorleni is 33 years old. She is married, has two children and currently lives with her family. She is requesting a loan to purchase medicine for livestock as her family relies on this economic activity. She does not have enough money to continue to help these animals as the medicine is costly; without the medicine, the animals might suffer serious consequences such as illness. Thus, the loan is not helping her alone, it will also help her animals as they will get better care; as a result, they will be in better shape, of higher quality and viable when time comes to commercialize them. This is why she is asking for a loan and it is the first loan she has been offered by FUDECOSUR. She has no other loans with national banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered her this loan with better terms and at a very reduced interest rate.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

FUDECOSUR works in one of the poorest regions of Costa Rica, where microfinance institutions (MFIs) are scarce or have a hard time keeping up with demand for small loans. By providing mostly agricultural loans, FUDECOSUR reaches rural borrowers that many MFIs consider to be too risky. However, this has also made it more difficult for the organization to find stable sources of capital to lend. Kiva's flexible, risk-tolerant capital plays a critical role in helping FUDECOSUR grow its portfolio and support even more borrowers.


The Foundation for the Development of Southern Communities (FUDECOSUR) is dedicated to economically empowering its clients by providing credit and training programs that help improve living conditions for micro-entrepreneurs and their children across Southern Costa Rica.
