Ramon R. started out selling snacks out of a cart he would push through the streets of Quisqueya. With a loan from Esperanza, he was able to open up a permanent storefront where he sells essential foodstuffs like bread, rice, and meats, as well as everyday conveniences like pens and candies. Ramon is a smart businessman with almost $100 in savings. However, Ramon's savings are not enough to grow his business. He will use this new loan to buy a freezer to expand his offerings to include ice, juices, and soft drinks. As soon as Ramon pays off his current loan with Esperanza, this loan will become active.
