A loan helped to buy vegetables (potatoes, onions, tomatoes, etc.) to be able to sell.

Lyder Adalberto's story

Lyder Adalberto is 58 years old. He is married and has 4 children. He lives in the district of Jipijapa, which is known as the Queen of Coffee. The people of Jipijapa are very friendly and hardworking, but they have suffered the impact of the of the difficult pandemic caused by COVID-19.

Lyder Adalberto is a hardworking man who, in spite of the difficult situation, has pushed forward. For some time now, he has made a living selling vegetables (tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, etc). Before the pandemic, he drove in his truck to parishes near his town. He had consistent customers who bought his produce. Due to the pandemic, he stopped working due to fear of the disease. Now that the situation appears to be returning to normal a little bit, he is already restarting his activities. He makes his sales only three days a week depending on the numbers on his license plate [as a way to control the spread of COVID-19, some countries like Ecuador are using the numbers on license plates to assign days for individuals to go out in public]. Even though his sales aren't very good, at least he has been able to continue moving forward.

Lyder Adalberto will invest the loan that the foundation awards him by buying vegetables (potatoes, onions, tomatoes, etc) so that he can sell them. Lyder Adalberto's dream is to have a fixed storefront so that he doesn't have to keep traveling.
