A loan of $1,100 helped to buy bags and cardboard.

Jacqueline Alexandra's story

Sra. Jacqueline is 42 years old and lives in Guayaquil (Orquídeas). She started her business after she lost her job. Jacqueline decided to open a recycling center because she saw that not many people recycle. In the area where she lives, there are not many places that recycle, which influenced her to open her own business.

Jacqueline currently manages her recycling center by herself. She weighs the recyclable products that come in, which keeps her busy from morning to night. The difficulties she faces in her business include having to take care of her children when they are sick. Jacqueline is not married and has three children, one grown child and two others who attend state schools.

She will use this loan to buy bags and cardboard that she can use for recycling bottles. Her dreams for the future include building a cement house, seeing her children continue their studies, and continuing to operate her business.
