A loan of $525 helped to purchase vegetables at wholesale.

Teodoro's story

Teodoro continues his work selling vegetables that he buys in bulk, like onions, tomato, potatoes and sweet peppers. He buys from vendors who bring these fresh and delicious products from the north of the country. His grown children and his wife help him out with his business.

He did not make a profit for the last two months because the cost of vegetables increased due to a loss of harvest during the rains, and also because his customers didn't buy a lot. The price is stable today. What helps him out is that he has a truck and also hauls goods for extra money.

With this new loan he wants to buy potatoes, onion, tomato and sweet peppers in bulk, with the goal of improving his sales and meeting his customers' demands so that he can maintain his clientele. He continues investing the loans in wholesale products.
