Olivine's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to purchase used tires for producing "silent blocs" to sell to mechanics.


Olivine's story

Olivine is divorced. Even so, her husband remits to her a monthly food allowance, so that she may survive with her five children (the three oldest in school, and two still very young), who are yet in her care.

Since 2005 she has had a business selling "silents blocs", that is, products made out of old tires and used by mechanics for repairing cars. She has fixed spot in an appealing neighborhood in the capital.

To respond to customer expectations (mostly from mechanics), she has asked for a loan to pay for enough tires to produce extra “silents blocs”. Her goal is to purchase land to pass down to her children in the future.
