Cooperativa Agroindustrial y de Servicios Múltiples de Puriscal RL

Supporting micro enterprises and small farmers in Puriscal

Costa Rica

The Cooperativa Agroindustrial y de Servicios Múltiples de Puriscal RL (Coopepuriscal) was founded in Puriscal, near Costa Rica's capital San Jose, in 1957. Coopepuriscal has a growing client portfolio and supplies goods for agriculture, veterinary and construction purposes. It also runs credit programmes for housing and productive activities.

Puriscal is a predominantly rural region, characterized by agricultural and livestock activities. Many micro enterprises and small farmers in this region struggle to obtain credit from traditional banks, and Coopepuriscal represents an important source of credit and business support.

In recent years, Coopepuriscal has grown in terms of portfolio and assets and aims at further improving its social performance management. It has endorsed the Smart Campaign to protect its clients against over-indebtedness.  In the past two years, it has received Oikocredit support for capacity building in the field of risk management.

Coopepuriscal has been an Oikocredit partner since 2012.
