A loan of $800 helped to buy scrap metal.

Santos Melbin's story

Santos, 33, lives in a common-law marriage with his partner, with whom he has two children. He lives in the town of Azacualpa, Santa Bárbara.

Santos has always made a living in trade. Three years ago he started buying and selling scrap metal and plastic items to recycle. He sells these articles to a recycling factory.

Currently he's requesting a loan for 15,000 lempiras [HNL] to buy scrap metal in other places to sell to the factory.

His dream is to improve himself economically.
