A loan of $1,100 helped to buy cans, iron, plastic bottles.


Juan Francisco's story

Juan wants to improve his workshop and his business selling scraps. He will buy more scraps from his customers like cans, iron, plastic bottles and other materials that Juan recycles. This loan will help him to make those purchases.

He thinks that the previous loan was helpful to his business - with the profits he was able to make repairs to the vehicle he uses to transport his merchandise. During this time he has had more sales opportunities and his income has allowed his household to live better.
