Pedro Antonio's story

Pedro is a senior citizen who lives in a very humble sector of the city in a small house that a relative lent. In this place, he has arranged an area where he collects recyclable materials that he finds walking the streets of the city.

With his advanced age he cannot get a job as a day laborer, his medical conditions do not allow it. That is why he works collecting paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, glass, metal which he gets on the street and purchases at a low cost in the houses and warehouses of the city. Upon collecting a certain amount of recyclable items, he sells them and with the income he obtains, he supports his humble home.

Pedro wants to continue increasing his business so he is requesting help to purchase: metals, cardboard, newspapers, cans, glass, tires, bottles, among others, so that he can get better profit from his activity.
