Immer Josue's story

Immer, 24, is married and has two children. He lives on land belonging to his father that he built his house on. He’s been working recycling materials for about four years. Before that he was a mechanic and worked repairing vehicle mufflers and radiators. However, noting that working recycling materials was a good fit for him, he tended more towards this business. He’s a very optimistic merchant because recycling doesn’t always produce high profits but Immer also sells watermelons along a variety of routes; he leaves home at 4am. He’s currently recycling gold. He has various routes and has special, regular customers which differentiate him from others who are in the same kind of business.

The loan he’s asking from Fundación Campo is to repay a debt with the institution and the other part is to buy material to resell to jewelry stores because sometimes he earns good profits with just one customer and he currently doesn’t have enough money to work.

He hopes the loan will help him cover new territory. He wants to buy a motorcycle because it’s much easier to buy gold according to him but what he most wants is to buy a piece of land of his own and build his house there.
