Francisco's story

Francisco is 52 years old and married to Ana. He has dedicated his efforts to recycling since the year 2007. Alongside this activity, he runs a small store from his house, where he offers fruits, vegetables, and all types of products to his neighbors.

In his recycling business, Francisco gathers cardboard boxes, plastic, iron and copper. Mornings, he goes out collecting one of these, and afternoons, a different material. Later, he sells what he gathers to recycling enterprises.

Francisco is requesting a loan to buy beans, yerba mate tea, eggs, soft drinks, and sweets, to restock his store.
