A loan of $400 helped to buy a tricycle cart to use for recycling.

Pedro Alberto's story

Pedro Alberto is from the city of Veracruz and his wife is from Mexico City. Pedro works as a school security guard and in the afternoons he and his family collect recyclables like plastic and aluminum. On weekends, his wife prepares Mexican food (menudo) to sell and help with household expenses because they have four school aged children and they want to raise their children so that they’ll have a better future. They request the loan to buy a tricycle cart because the one he currently owns is in very poor condition. Having a new one will make transporting the merchandise easier.
