Alfredo's sales have more than tripled since he started with Novica. He began with a few assistants and now has grown to employ full-time employees and several other women who help fulfill his orders. Many of the women who work for him are able to provide essentials for their homes like mattresses, refrigerators, and other appliances.
Over twenty years ago, Alfredo was infected with tuberculosis at just 22 years of age. For nine months, he was bedridden and unable to work. Tuberculosis is a deadly disease with more than 5,000 people per day passing away from the disease. Alfredo survived and was able to become healthy again.
Alfredo currently provides full-time jobs to a single mother, a man trying to fund his education, and several women who are bringing income to their households.
Alfredo currently supports English studies for his four nephews, with the hope that it will help them achieve a better future.
Alfredo was recognized by the city hall for his excellent work.
