Veronica De Jesus's story

Veronica is the single mother of two children. She’s been working in the recycling business for 14 years. She began by collecting discards on the streets of Managua with her children who work and attend school. Now she sells to large companies and thanks to her savings she was able to build a humble home. She is asking for her first loan to buy plastics, cardboard, papers, wires, appliances, and other things to maintain her business and pay the household expenses.
