A loan of $500 helped to buy more recycled metal at wholesale.


Jonas De Jesus's story

Jonás lives in his own house with his life companion and their four children. He works buying and selling recyclables: iron, aluminum, copper, bronze, etc. He does so from place to place in various neighborhoods near his place of residence. He’s able to cover some of his household expenses with what he earns from his work.

Jonás is asking for a loan to be able to continue buying recyclables at wholesale and stay in business to generate higher income and provide better quality of life for his family.
