Esmeralda Del Carmen's story

Esmeralda lives in her own house with her husband, seven children and one grandson. She buys and sells scrap metal such as aluminum, copper, bronze, iron, etc. and also plastic. For a few years now, she has sold these products from her home with the help of her husband and her two oldest children. With the money she earns they manage to cover some of the household expenses. Esmeralda is asking for a credit to buy more scrap metal and glass, so she can continue working and improve her income which would bring more economic stability to her family.
