Con Fe Y Alegria Group's story

Elmer sells tubers and has a stall in his city market; he has had his business for about 6 years. Previously, Elmer worked helping his father framing metals but due to the little work he decided to leave the business and help his mother who sells vegetables. Little by little he learned about the business and with his brother they decided to open their own stalls to sell vegetables and tubers. They tried out the business for 15 days and sadly his brother got discouraged and left. Elmer started out with very little capital but at this time he has gotten ahead and at present has 2 trucks that he uses to give transportation to his colleagues who bring their products from the wholesaler market. This has encouraged him devote himself to this work and wants to buy another truck and hopes to buy his own plot of land in the future. The loan will help him to keep buying his products that he sells for example: potatoes, onions, tomatoes, etc. At present he is the president of the group “Faith and Happiness.”
