Farmacias Ibarra – a whole family legacy
By Dr. Jeimmy García
It started in Ciudad Neilly more than 50 years ago our grandfather had a medical dispensary in Pejibaye de Pérez Zeledón for many years.
Jason and I grew up in Heredia in a small house, with dreams and illusions of achieving great things. My parents Olga and Guillermo decided to take us to the United States when I was 15 years old. They, among other tasks, worked in cleaning, living the “American dream.”
Listening to God’s inner voice, this experience became the necessary impulse to know that we wanted something better for our lives. This desire to improve fueled a constant struggle in the right direction, and as part of this experience, we completed the learning of the English language.
Meanwhile, my older brothers Michael and Mauricio stayed in Costa Rica, working and studying, going through difficult times without a doubt. Mauricio decided to keep working and help Michael finish his studies. After completing his career as a pharmacist, the adventure began. Our mother, Olga, already with significant experience in pharmacies, at the age of 24, decided to open Farmacias Ibarra in Palmar Norte, accompanied by my brother and colleague, Dr. Michael (pharmacist).
Michael helped us finish our studies, and we mobilized the other brothers with this same impulse. We migrated to the Southern Zone of Costa Rica. Mauricio in Ciudad Cortés, Jason in Sierpe (and currently in Ojochal), and myself, Jeimmy in Uvita, we opened branches to form the Ibarra Pharmacy and Macrobiotic Chain.
For several years working separately due to different difficulties we faced, in 2016, we decided to merge Farmacias Ibarra to work together. The process has not been easy; we have all learned a lot and work as a team. We recognize that the weakness of one is the strength of the other. We have gone through difficult times, and we have not stopped having faith that we are in the Southern Zone with a purpose.
The values that we learned as children, teamwork, faith in God, the struggle despite economic problems, health, and any other circumstance give us the conviction that this will be temporary while focusing on our goals and dreams.
After the branch in Cortés suffered a flood and many losses, we decided to build our own store in Cuatro Esquinas, located next to the supermarket.
