However, three years ago they moved to El Oro, a village in the State of Mexico. One of the main challenges they faced in this new location was that some of the customers in the region did not trust the quality of their products and preferred travelling to Mexico City where they had to pay more for the same product. Ernesto believes that it will only be a matter of time until they acquire the necessary credentials to become reliable in the new market. A loan from World Vision will allow Ernesto and Olivia to buy more merchandise to sell. That way they would have a broader range of products to offer their clients. The additional income will improve their economic situation and will also benefit their community by offering the products they are lookinig for without having to travel to Mexico City.
