A loan of $400 helped to purchase plastic and copper items.


Antolina's story

Antonila lives in her own home with her children. She has been engaged in buying and selling plastic and copper items for several years. When she has purchased enough products, she stores them in sacks, as shown in the photograph, and then sells them to places that buy these types of items. With the profits she earns from her sales, she manages to cover some household expenses. Antolina is requesting a loan to be able to purchase all types of wholesale plastic and copper because she has had great demand lately. In this way, she can earn higher profits and be able to provide her family with better financial stability.
