Edelyn Borda

In the past, Edelyn sold charcoal, but gave this up as she was earning only $5 a day. Now, at 24, making only $10 labouring on a farm she has decided to go back to the charcoal business. Edelyn sources her supplies from burners who produce the fuel in the nearby forest. A loan will let Edelyn buy charcoal in much larger volumes, which should double her previous earnings. She hopes this will provide enough to support her family.
