Cesar Augusto's story

Cesar is 52 years old, married, and has three children. He lives in the town of San Manuel, Cortes.

Don Cesar buys and sells all types of scrap metal, old vehicles in bad condition, machinery, and old equipment. He started this business 12 years ago. Cesar buys parts or vehicles in bad condition and then sells these items by the pound to factories that recycle iron, aluminum, and other metals. He previously worked as a mechanic, but the income was not enough.

Cesar is requesting a loan of 10,000 HNL so that he can buy scrap materials to sell. This will help to increase his sales and his income. His goal is to continue growing his business and consolidate it so that he can improve his quality of life. He thanks ODEF and Kiva for this opportunity to receive financing.
