A loan helped to buy firewood, sawdust, water, and palm fiber.

Edilma Yolanda's story

Edilma Yolanda and her family live in Los Bajos de Montecristi, a place of humble people dedicated to working in the fields and making handicrafts, a place also very affected by the effects of Covid 19.
She is a woman who works with her husband in order to get ahead, and even more so now with this pandemic as everything has become very complicated for them. They have a brick factory (material used in the construction of houses). There they make bricks, the same ones that are then delivered to retailers. The pandemic has affected them a lot at the beginning and the business declined, but now everything is returning to normal.
This loan is to buy firewood, sawdust, water, and palm fiber, which are the materials used to make the bricks.
