Milagrosa's Story

Milagrosa earns a living by engaging in selling charcoal for many years now. She is a married woman and has four grown children. Her husband goes farming to help manage the economy of her house.

In her spare time, she also engages in buying and selling of buli ( a kind of palm), used in weaving native baskets in her town.

She wants to be more progressive and sustainable. That is why she has requested a loan from Kiva's field partner CEVI. It will be used to purchase more empty coconut shells and more supplies of buli (a kind of palm).

This will help her cope with demand and able to repay her obligation on time.
