Vladimir Ramon
Vladimir is a small businessman who sells meals. He has been in this business for more than twenty years and offers a variety of food. His business is located in his home. He started his business with his mother's help and his own capital. He didn't offer a great variety of food at first because it was only fast food. However, using his profits, he started to sell roast meat (chicken). He further improved his business by purchasing tables, chairs and utensils with which to make his food. It was Afodenic who provided him with the loan to achieve his goal.

Vladimir will use this new loan to replace some of the roof of his shelter and further expand his business space. He will use his loan to buy metal sheets, beams and bolts to make these improvements.
