A loan of $5,025 helped a member to buy plastic and cardboard to resell.


La Alegria Group's story

The “Alegría” (Joy) committee has been working with the Fundación for more than a year; its members have been carrying out productive activities and through this work are able to help their families. Matilde is one of this committee’s members. She joined with the hope of being able to grow and earn higher income to support her family. She works buying, selling and gathering recyclable materials like plastic, aluminum, cardboard, etc. Through this honest, dignified work she’s able to help her family providing for their needs so they can have a life that’s free from wants.

Matilde is very proud of her work which is her family’s support and is asking for this loan to invest in plastics and cardboard that she’ll be able to resell and earn higher profits. She’s grateful for this new opportunity she has because it will be of much help to her.
