Total loan: $5,000


Canovanas, PR, Puerto Rico / Retail

Cristina's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped buy inventory for my eco friendly ecommerce store.

Cristina's story

My name is Cristina, from Canóvanas, Puerto Rico. Since the age of 15 I have been involved in different activities related to the environment, including international coast cleaning, supporting agro-ecological farms around the island, participating in environmental journalism programs, among others. After taken a little awareness about the issue of garbage and plastic pollution, I could not ignore the problem and decided to begin my transition to a zero (low) waste lifestyle. Since then, I began to look for reusable products and it was in this moment where Simpla was born. I want to create an eCommerce store with the purpose of selling reusable and eco-friendly alternatives for people who are making a zero waste transition. Enviromental conservation and conscious consumerism is what motivates me. We need to take care of our planet and natural resources.
