What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

We have built a prototype structure, but before the roof and floor were completed the fear of spreading the Coronavirus made us stop. We are now buying plastic from people who have very little income, and are building a facility that can handle all the plastic we are collecting.

Actions I’ve taken so far

We have mostly been involved in perfecting our process, and now it feels like we need help with finding a market, or collecting money, and plastic, so we could give our bricks to school construction.

My future goals

We hope to clean up some of the plastic that is part of the landscape in Guatemala, and add employment and opportunity as we turn the plastic into bricks/blocks

My motivations to work with a mentor

Is I’ve been in business (owned a custom cabinet shop) but we continued to grow with word of mouth. This process can do a world of good in an awkward time, and I’d like some help in maximizing the impact.
