International Microloan: Pablo Ylma, Used Electronics Repair
In addition to donating a dollar to a liberal cause in America every time we sell a sweat-free shirt through Skreened, we send another dollar to an entrepreneur in the developing world who’s trying to self-start business. That way, you can have the security of knowing that the shirt on your back was made with respect for the human who made it, but you also can be assured that some money is being directed to the developing nations that desperately need capital.
This time around, we’re sending funds to Pablo David Cespedes Ylma of Chiclayo, Peru, who will use the funds to support his business of repairing used electronics and offering them up for resale. This is an environmentally responsible business that offers Mr. Ylma the prospect of economic independence.
