Reynaldo's story

Reynaldo continues to work in the purchasing and resale of scrap metal. Also, during harvest season he takes advantage of the availability of avocados, corn on the cob, squash, tomatoes and other vegetables that are at a low price, obtaining this extra income to help cover the family expenses. He has seven children, two of which work and the others study; his wife helps with sales.

Now he has his own truck , which has helped him to improve his work. With this new loan he will buy scrap metals that will give him the most profits. He will buy 1000 pounds of scrap metal in aluminum, copper, bronze and some of the loan he will invest in the harvest of corn on the cob, tomatoes, peppers and onion. Thanks to these loans he continues to increase his sales and has benefited by managing his business well.
