A loan of $750 helped purchase of material for trash collection.

Gilbert's story

This gentleman had the clever idea, in 2006, to begin collecting trash. This work is very profitable for him because he has a monopoly in his sector, which permits him to make a big profit on his service. More and more households are asking for his service, so he wants to expand his business and is asking WAGES for a loan to buy material to use for trash collection.

He is married and has 2 children. He uses the income from his business to support his family.
