Latinos Group's story

Ernesto is married, 38 years old, and only completed one year of primary education. He has six children, four of whom are studying, and he dedicates himself to selling different types of plastic ware. He began this business selling on the streets with a bicycle. Today he has twelve years of experience. He credits the support of his wife, who dedicates herself to domestic tasks.

He organized a group to be able to request a loan that will serve him to increase his investment in his plastic sales, specifically chairs, basins, trash bins, trays, materials to produce baskets, and everything related to plastic. In the future, he hopes to have his own big store. The other partners dedicate themselves to raising animals, producing plastic baskets, and commerce.
