A loan of $700 helped to recycle plastic, glass, and cardboard.

Carlos Eduardo's story

Carlos, age 24, lives in La Libertad. He had to look for a source of income in order to help his family. This way he is able to have more income for his household.

He gathers and buys recycling material from the garbage dump to later sell. This way he has a greater source of income for his home. He only has one difficulty in his work, which is his health. Sometimes he is affected, and on those days he does not have financial income for his family.

He is in a common-law marriage, and his wife takes care of the domestic chores. His has a daughter, but she is not yet school age.

He will use the loan for his business of recycling plastic, glass, and cardboard.

In the future he wishes to improve his income and to have the capital to purchase the recycling.
