G.s Alto Verde Group's story

Abel, 31 years old, lives with his wife and two children in their house. For the past 3 years, he has made his living selling baleadas (flour tortilla folded in half with refried beans, cheese, cream and other ingredients inside), fruit drinks and water. With this business, Abel and his wife have gotten their family ahead and have improved their living conditions. They are struggling to expand their business.

His colleagues of the group called Alto Verde are very happy to have named him as their leader, since he is a serious and responsible person.

Abel is applying for this loan to buy potatoes, yucca, chayote squash, plantains, flour, soda, fruits, bottled soft drinks meats and oils, since he and his wife want to sell other types of snacks, in addition to selling baleadas, in order to increase their income and in this way, get ahead.

Luis' business is selling clothes. Claudia has a business selling wholesale clothing. The photos show each person's business.
