Although Ramon is 69 years old, he must continue working in order to cover his living expenses. He owns a soda and juice stand that he runs with the help of his wife. Ramon was a construction worker and handy man most of his life, but because of his old age he cannot no longer find work in these fields. So he set up a snack and beverage stand in his home because he lives near soccer field and basketball courts. Thirsty players are great customers. He will use his second loan to buy more snack food and other basic foods to sell at his stand. His first loan was a success because it enabled him to break into selling these complimentary goods.

Ramon has 3 children who are grown and on their own. Twenty years ago, his wife and his children’s mother passed away. Ramon is remarried (his wife is in the picture) and his the income from his business supplies food and housing for this couple.
