Fundación para el Desarrollo de Base (FUNDEBASE)

Fundación para el Desarrollo de Base (FUNDEBASE) was founded in 1995 by a group of non-governmental organization leaders in Costa Rica dedicated to providing microcredit and financial services to small businesses that normally would not qualify for financial assistance.

Since its founding, FUNDEBASE has helped small businesses receive microcredit and professional development through its sustainable, welcoming and supportive services. As a result, these small businesses have been able to generate income and new jobs that benefit the individual owners as well as their communities.

FUNDEBASE has established strategic partnerships with organizations such as the National Program for Microcredit Support (PRONAMYPE, in Spanish) and the National Bank of Costa Rica in order to link small businesses to financial resources.
