A loan of $850 helped to buy charcoal.

Blanca Ofelia's story

Blanca Ofelia is a hardworking woman who works every day of the week from very early until the afternoon. Her business is selling charcoal and sacks of beans. She serves her customers at home.

She works with her husband, who goes out on foot to sell for her. They also make a living in agriculture growing beans and corn.

She's requesting a loan from CEPRODEL to invest in working capital to buy charcoal. This is so she has a greater quantity to satisfy customer demand and attract more buyers of her products. She used the previous loan to buy more charcoal and to improve her house.

She's grateful to CEPRODEL and Kiva for the opportunity and the trust they have placed in her. With the loans she has increased her business, allowing her to bring food home and have better living conditions for herself and her family.
