A loan of $1,700 helped to buy recycled items to sell them in bulk and generate profits.


Gloria Amparo's story

Gloria has worked in the field of recycling for approximately 10 years, and thanks to this work, she generates the income to pay her household expenses. Gloria is a single mother and the head of a family of 4 children, since the father of her children abandoned her 7 years ago and has not contributed economically to the income of her household. Due to this situation, Gloria needs to generate her own income so that she can satisfy the needs of her household. Gloria works collecting and buying recycled items, which she later sells in bulk to a recycling company at a good price. Since a person is currently selling her a large quantity of recycled items at a very low price, Gloria hopes that a loan will give her the chance to buy recycled items so that she can sell them in bulk and generate profits. Gloria hopes that her business will continue to grow and she will be able to have a warehouse with greater capacity to store the recycled items. In addition, Gloria hopes that if her business grows, it will generate more income for her so she can improve the quality of life for her children.
