A loan of $800 helped to buy scrap metal wholesale.


Oscar Armando's story

Oscar Armando is 51 years old and lives in his family home together with his wife and two children who are already adults. His business is buying scrap metal from customers, house to house, and then selling it to collectors who recycle it and process it so that it can be re-used. He carries out his collections in the main areas near his home.

Oscar has been in this business for many years and so he already has experience and some regular customers who have complete trust in him because he is a responsible and hard-working man. His dream is to provide his family with better living conditions and so he has decided to invest in his only source of income so that he can increase his income and achieve his dream. He is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL to buy scrap metal wholesale. This will allow him to satisfy greater demand. Oscar is a very hard-working man of strong faith who believes that he will be able to achieve his dream in this way.
