Beti's story

Mrs Beti is married. She buys recyclable materials, transforms them, and sells them as finished products. For example, she makes iron tables, decorations from plastic bottles, plastic purses, and other items. Her business is located in Ciudad del Este. Taking into account the aspects of increasing living quality through recycling and the good price of her products, she makes a good income from her sales. She tells us that she is very proud of what she does as it is a dignified and honest work. She says that everything she does is to give her family a better lifestyle, and so that they don't have to experience the same problems that she has had. She describes herself as a very responsible person who has obligations and a desire to make progress. She is requesting this loan for the purchase and re-sale of recyclable items. This will be a great help for her. She thanks the Fundacion for the opportunity with which they are providing her.
