Venezuera Group's story

Aranyaeli is in his early 40s and married with four children who are still going to school. He has a lorry which he is using for his transport business. He gets tenders for delivering things like sand, small stones, roofing tiles and building materials. He has been in this business for 5 years now. He works from 6.00am to 7.30pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.
