A loan of $800 helped to buy firewood, corn and beans for her business.

Ogla Betlania's story

Olga, 39, lives with her partner, has three children who depend on this union, and makes a living selling corn and firewood which is her principal source of income. For over two years, she has been involved in this economic activity, which has generated sufficient income to cover household necessities; the education and upkeep of her children; and financial expenses.

Olga is a very hard-working person. She will use the support she is requesting to buy firewood, corn and beans and in that way have sufficient raw materials to satisfy the demands of her customers, which will generate better income for her.

One of Olga's dreams is to improve the living conditions of her family.
