Oldalia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase more coconut shells to produce more volume of charcoal to sell.
Oldalia sells copra and charcoal in town and earns well to sustain her living. With her generated revenue, she was able to repay successfully her previous loan used for the business. She likes her business because there is no one doing this kind of business in her village. She took a new loan recently to purchase more coconut shells to produce more volume of charcoal to sell. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to expand her business as well as to improve the general living conditions of her family.
