A loan of $300 helped to buy firewood to sell.


Josefa's story

Josefa has been selling firewood for many years. She runs her business right out of her home and she has many customers, especially women who sell pupusas (a typical Salvadorean food) and tortillas because they cook their products over firewood. With the money that she earns, Josefa is able to get ahead.

She is requesting a loan in order to buy more firewood to sell, in this way, increase her profits and earn a better life.
