A loan of $1,425 helped a member to buy recycled plastics and old metals.


Nice Development Group's story

Jacenta is a single mother of four who is divorced from her husband. Jacenta is persevering and social.

To make ends meet, she started looking around for scrap because she did not have money to start any major business. So she would pick up used plastic materials, collect them together, and later take them to factories that manufacture plastics. With this, she would get paid and was able to take care of her family needs. She has even bought a small piece of land out of the proceeds from the scrap.

She will use this loan to buy more scrap (used bottles and old metals) from the local people. She dreams of building a house for herself and the children, so that she can use the money she now spends on rent to send her children to better schools, Apparently they attend universal primary education.
