As an added value, Freddy, doctors and health professionals offer medical advice at the store to prevent self-medication, as a way to focus his social responsibility with his customers; he guides them with everything related to medical prescriptions, managing dietary nutrition, etc.

This is how Farmaprevid was born: “dedicated to the sale and distribution of a variety of pharmaceutical products, and to personal health care and hygiene, as an innovative concept directed to the chain that influences health and therefore, the quality of life of the users of this service”

Freddy wants his customers to find the widest range of medicine at Farmaprevid; for this reason, he is requesting his first loan from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to increase his inventory with eye drops, varied antibiotics, personal heath and hygiene products, and at the same time, start his financial relationship with this organization.
