Mr. Roman V. is a father of 5 children who he supports and helps in their studies. He has worked in the store approximately more than 4 years. He also has small crops since they are sufficient enough to survive. He wakes up very early to work in the farmlands to be able to deliver the bread everyday. He also occasionally works as an assistant because the job he has isn't enough to offer his family a comfortable standard of living.

This is the first loan he obtains from our institution which will be used to buy merchandise for a grocery store and improve the service for clients which in turn will increase profits and his quality of life.
