A loan of $850 helped to buy recycled plastic and other supplies.

Rosa Amelia's story

Rosa continues selling plastic items and with her small grocery store. She makes the plastic items. She has the machines necessary to do so and has more than 20 years’ experience. Most of her products consist of glasses, dishes, small and large plastic baskets that she sells at wholesale. In the last few years she’s manufactured more thanks to getting financing.

She will use this new loan to buy recycled plastic, dyes, motor belts, yards of resistance fabric, yards of resistance wire to manufacture five-thousand small mugs, three-thousand large mugs, two-thousand tubs, one-thousand coffee cups, among others to meet customer demand and obtain profits for her household’s expenses. She always has support from her husband; they both work together.
