Julia Patricia's story

Julia is 26 and lives in Machala, Ecuador. She decided to sell recycled items to help her family, since she was not previously working. She works hard every day for four hours, in a difficult climate. She hopes in the future to have her own recycling business and that she will be blessed with health and life. With this loan, she will buy copper.
