Sobre Ruedas Group's story

The banking group "Sobre Ruedas de Villarrica", located in the region of Araucanía, Chile, is composed of members working in a variety of businesses, including the sale of fruits and vegetables.

Florencio, located on the extreme right of the photo (with his hands in his pockets and wearing a green sweater), works selling basic provisions and fruits. He began his business 6 years ago. Previously, Florencio worked as a carpenter, but because people were very inconsistent with their payments he preferred to start a more profitable business which would also enable him to spend more time at home with his wife. He bought the necessary equipment he needed and also bought himself a small truck with which he can transport the merchandise that he buys. Right now, Florencio needs a loan in order to buy more merchandise to stock his business. He expects that he will have good sales, as he already has a strong client base.

Florencio has really enjoyed working with the Fondo Esperanza, as it is the monetary support he has received that has enabled him to have the financial security he now enjoys, as well as the ability to buy the merchandise that he needs.

In this group: Juan Segundo Alamiro, Marco Antonio, Ruben Dario, Hilda Del Rosario, Erwin Hernaldo, Rodrigo Fernando, Lorenzo Agustin, Florencio Ismael, Hector Florencio, Iris Felicita, Deni Luis, Yanetto, Leslie Adrian, Monica Cecilia, Jorge Eugenio, Pablo Andres, Felipe Ignacio, Victor Ivan, Karen Stefany
