A loan of $200 helped to buy more plastics, empty cans and bottles to resell for profits.


Jose's story

Jose is a single man, aged 49, who operates a small junkshop. He has bought and resold junk for almost nine years now. He finished only high school and has a disability in his left arm, which is why he finds it hard to find better employment and pursues this kind of business. His income provides his family's sustenance for meals and basic kitchen needs.

He is now asking for a loan of 8,000 PHP to buy more plastics, empty cans and bottles to resell for profits. Someday, with enough funds, he hopes to start up a small store for additional income and to expand his business.
