Sarah is involved in the business of collecting plastics and other scrap materials. Her daily job routine is waking up early in the morning and moving around the city in search of old plastic materials. She sells them to different factories for recycling. However, this does not only benefit Sarah through earning a living, it’s also a benefit to the environment since she is involved in reducing waste. She wants the loan to buy scrap.
