Our History

Fundecooperación para el Desarrollo Sostenible was founded in 1994 as a private foundation with multi-segment representation and a socio-environmental approach for the purpose of providing farmers and small enterprises with access to appropriate financing.

At present, Fundecooperación’s goal is to promote sustainable development in Costa Rica, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), by financing and extensively supporting entrepreneurs and SMEs throughout the country, providing technical assistance and aiding sustainable business plans with opportunities for environmental improvement, in addition to providing advisory in the various stages of project growth.

Fundecooperación works to meet the financing and technical assistance needs of micro, small and medium enterprises engaging in sustainable and innovative economic activities with an environmental commitment, building together an economic and environmental model that serves to boost the progress and development of communities and the country in general.

Fundecooperación promotes partnerships that drive improvement and project growth through training, assistance and advisory.
