A loan of $1,500 helped to buy recyclable materials.

Francisca's story

Francisca is 57-years-old and her children are all independent adults now. She has been working collecting bottles and packaging materials to recycle at home that she then sells to various firms. This loan is her second sequence in the institution and Francisca is going to use it to buy merchandise like plastic and glass bottles and packaging. Her reason for requesting the loan is to increase her profits and thus her capital. Francisca’s business challenge is competition because there are many people like her who work recycling materials. She will use profits to buy material for her business. Her dream for her business is to gather up much more for recycling.
