Albeiro Antonio's story

At 51 years old, after being unemployed for three years, Albeiro began working as a recycler in the town of El Carmen de Viboral, located to the east of Antioquia. He stores the materials that he collects in a small storage facility behind his house, and every time he has enough materials, he sells them to junkyards in El Carmen de Viboral and Rionegro.

Due to an accident that Albeiro suffered some months back, he finds himself with little working capital and still suffers from some physical problems. As a result, he hopes to buy some recycled materials to allow his business to recover, which will provide the minimum income to support his family.
