Sharan runs a waste segregating and sorting enterprise. He processes plastic waste and sends it off to authorised recyclers & coprocessors for recycling, avoiding waste in landfills. He is planning to scale up his efforts to process higher volumes of waste and the entire process is operationally heavy and a needs huge working capital. As the cash flow in the waste management sector is difficult and access to credit from other financial institutions demands higher interest rates along with collateral, it becomes challenging for a first-generation entrepreneur. With the loan Sharan will be able to run the operations seamlessly and scale up his to recruit more informal waste workers in the formal waste management ecosystem. He wishes to recruit at least 20 waste workers, divert more plastic from landfills and hopes to manage 1114 MT of plastic waste and indirectly impact over 180+ workers over a period of 2 years which would include sourcing vendors, logistics partners, and end destinations.

My dream is to enjoy a secure future with my family.
