Know Eliecer and his story below
Eliecer worked for a financial institution a time ago. When he was an employee, he requested a loan, but the interest rate was 55% yearly. He could not pay back the loan, so he got a new job as a shuttle driver when the pandemic hit in 2020. He lost his job and found an opportunity in a new market opened by Nosara Crece in December 2020.
He became famous for selling plants and started his own nursery with his mother and children. Then, he received the Vive el Sueño training program and applied for a loan in Nosara Crece to expand his business. Eliecer repaid the total capital in only three months thanks to his growing project, the training and tools he got in the training, and the increase in sales after his first business loan with our program. Now, he is looking for a new loan to buy a truck and expand its capacity to supply more and bigger projects in town.
