Mario's story

Mario is 40 years old and has a young son. For many years, he has made a living recycling bottles and containers, which he storages in his home and then distributes to the different companies. This loan is his first one with Emprender (Field Partner), Mario will use this loan to buy bottles, plastic and glass containers. His reason for applying for this loan is to increase his profits and therefore his capital.

Mario faces challenges in his business; competition is one, since many people like the engaged in the recycling of materials. He will benefit from the purchase of more material. His dream is to have a larger recycling collection centre. He is happy for the opportunity/help giving to him, since this is his main source of income to support his family.
