A loan of $800 helped to buy plastic, cardboard, and bottles.


Juan Morales's story

The client is from the Fortín area of Guayaquil. He started with this business activity some time ago due to the lack of employment at the time. He looked for a way to arise financially.

His wife actively helps him with his work, which he does every day from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. He does not have children.

In the future he wishes to become the leading recycler in the area. He needs the loan to buy plastic, cardboard, and bottles.
