Lorenza's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy coconut shells for charcoal.

Lorenza's story

Lorenza is a 60-year-old woman. She and her family live in a simple dwelling in Abuyog, Leyte. She earns a living through selling charcoal.

Now she asks for a loan of PHP 3,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEV (a microfinance NGO) in the Philippines. She will use this loan for additional capital to buy coconut shells for charcoal.

Lorenza wants to improve this business in the future for a better means of living.
