A loan of $1,025 helped to purchase scrap items at wholesale.


Miriam's story

Miriam is 31 years old and has two school-aged children who are 5 and 9 years old. She has worked for many years providing recycling services for scrap and containers. Her supply is located in her home in the Villa Ingavi area, where she distributes to different businesses. This loan is her first with this institution. Miriam will use this loan to purchase merchandise for her scrap and plastic and glass container business. She wants to increase her income and her capital. Miriam encounters challenges with her business such as competition, since there are many people who work with recycled materials like she does. She will use the benefits of the loan to purchase more materials for her business. Miriam hopes that her business will have a larger area for recycling and be able to purchase at retail and sell in larger quantities to businesses that are responsible for recycling this material.
