Aleli Group's story

Verónica is 30 years old, married, and has two children who are in school. Ángel is in his first year of high school and Magali is in her third year. Verónica's husband is called Joaquín and he is an agricultural worker.

Verónica owns a grocery store which she has had for four months. She says that it is doing very well and she will invest her loan in buying groceries such as milk, oil, soft drinks, cookies, eggs, etc. Verónica would like her store to be a little larger but she is also very happy to be doing well and perhaps in the future she will expand it some more.

They all have their own sales businesses including: selling groceries, sweet treats, fruit and vegetables, meat, bread, food, etc.
