A loan helped to buy firewood, sawdust, water, palm fibres and other materials to make bricks.


Pastora Lola's story

Pastora Lola is a hardworking woman. Together with her husband they are trying to move forwards despite the difficulties, but with the help of loans they are improving their lives. They have a brick making business (the bricks are for use in housing construction). They make the bricks themselves which they then deliver to traders, or sometimes directly to construction sites when requested. Business is picking up, but fear of the virus continues.
This loan is to buy firewood, sawdust, water and palm fibres and other materials to make the bricks.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Elizabeth Daw.
