A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase iron, copper, cans, and scrap metal.

Carlos Luis's story

Carlos has a business buying and selling scrap metal. He lives with his wife and their two children, ages 5 and 12. Carlos has had this business for 5 years. He works every day from 6am to 4pm.

He is requesting this loan to have available cash, because his business involves traveling to various towns in the area to purchase iron, copper, cans, and all types of scrap metal at people's homes, and then selling it at recycling centers. This loan will help him have available cash to make his normal purchases and sales.

Carlos aspires to have available funds to be able to continue with his business and increase his household income.
