Modesta’s a hardworking mother. She lives very far from her place of work, a job that wasn’t at all easy to get. Because of problems in the community she has to travel every day for several hours.

She’s asking for a one-million, thirty-five thousand colon loan (1,035,000) to buy a motorcycle so that she can travel to and from work more easily. With this she hopes to get to work more quickly and take advantage of this opportunity that not too many people in the community have.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

As a small and relatively young MFI located in Costa Rica, EDESA has difficulty attracting other sources of capital. Many other microfinance funders do not work in Costa Rica, because overall the country is too rich. However, organizations such as EDESA work with extremely marginalized populations in Costa Rica that really need the access to capital that EDESA provides. By funding EDESA, Kiva lenders are allowing the organization to grow and reach more people than they otherwise would be able to reach.
