A loan of $650 helped to buy more scraps by the quintal, as well as a scale and necessary tools.


Osmildo's story

Osmildo is 50 years old and lives in a house he owns with his family. He makes a living by buying and selling scraps like iron, aluminum, tires, copper, etc. His business has been located in his home for the last five years. He has an established clientele that seeks him out for the good prices he offers. With what he obtains from his business, he is able to sustain his home on a daily basis.

He is asking for the loan to be able to buy more scraps by the quintal, as well as a scale and necessary tools to be able to continue with his business, which generates good earnings. In this way, he will be able to keep giving his family a better quality of life.
