A loan of $1,500 helped to open another recycling center.


Ohsin's story

Ohsin is single but she has one child. She lives with her parents in La Paz in a brick and mortar house which they rent. Ohsin buys and sells disposable materials such as bottles, plastics and metal. She is in danger of contracting illnesses due to contamination from her working materials, in particular due to lack of hygiene when manipulating them. Ohsin is asking for a loan to open another center for recycling materials in order to increase her profit. For the time being, Ohsin is the only source of income in her household so she needs help.
