A loan of $450 helped to purchase iron, pastic, aluminum, and fertilizer for farming.


Jose Matias's story

Jose is soliciting a new loan to be able to purchase recycled goods, like: iron, plastic, and aluminum. The loan would help him stay afloat economically as he seeks out new clients to purchase from. Jose also planted pumpkin patch and would apply part of the loan to purchase fertilizer for the plot.
With the previous loan he increased his ability to purchase from clients. This is his job; purchase scrap from everyday people and sell it in bulk to a larger provider. With this loan he has increased his purchasing power, has also invested in the new plot and has been working in connstruction as an extra hand; all of this has brought better conditions for his family.
