Due to the lack of transformers, traders are working without electricity and remain without a concrete answer to solve the problem.
Since Friday, November 10, merchants living on Guarapiche Avenue, in Unare I, remain without electricity.
“Some neighbors gave us support to turn on the equipment, to work with the tax machine, but some of us don’t have electricity and the situation is terrible,” said Carmen Cáceres.
He pointed out that three transformers were on fire, and currently there are others “sparking,” so they believe the situation could worsen.
“We are waiting (…) working without electricity,” said Juan Bello, also about those affected by the lack of transformers.
Until now, without a concrete answer, he commented that they are working as hard as they can and do not know how long they will continue in this situation.
Cáceres described that around 15 locations were affected by the lack of electricity, which also included a pharmacy, laboratory, liquor store, and offices.
Some mentioned that they were told that they had to buy the necessary transformers and then install them, which means that they cost almost eight thousand dollars.
“In order to pay, every commercial establishment has to pay a lot of (…) things that are difficult,” they lamented.
