Sohar Gricelda
My name is Sohar, and I sell dry wood to my neighbors. In our community we use ovens to cook our food, tortillas, etc. For us it is cheaper to use ovens (not stoves), and this helps us conserve energy. My biggest clients are the people dedicated to manufacturing and selling tortillas. I need to maintain a great amount of wood, and buying in large quantity is cheaper. In this way I can obtain greater revenues to help my family.

Translated from Spanish by Marco Alves, Kiva Volunteer.

Me llamo Sohar y me dedico a la venta de lena seca a mis vecinos, en nuestra comunidad usamos fogones para cocinar nuestros alimentos, las tortillas y otros. Para nosotros es mucho mas barato usar fogones que estufas y nos ayuda en la economia de nuestros hogares. Mis mayores clientes son las personas que se dedican a elaborar y vender tortillas es por lo que necesito mantener un buen numero de lena y comprando por cantidades grandes es mas barato, asi puedo obtener mejores ingresos para ayudar a mi familia.
