A loan of $1,050 helped buy recyclable materials (plastic and metal) for his business.


Santos Porfirio's story

Mr. Santos works selling and buying plastic and metal materials to recycle. He has 8 years of experience; he begins his day very early by visiting various neighborhoods to buy material that is later sold to a warehouse. Mr. Santos also sells shrimp, watermelons and other products. He enjoys his work since he spends his days being very busy. Mr. Santos' income from his businesses are good and have been enough for him to get ahead in life with his partner and son.

Mr. Santos needs a loan of L. 20,000.00, money that will be used to buy recyclable materials since he needs to have enough money everyday. He hopes that Prisma will be able to help him.
