Ricardo De Las Mercedes
Ricardo, aged 48, is a humble but very enterprising entrepreneur. He works as a security guard, and what he really enjoys is sports and body building. For this reason, he started a small gym seven years ago with much effort and sacrifice. It still does not have the most modern machines, but it is one of the few gyms that exists in his village and Ricardo works there from the very early hours of the morning. His wife and children help him run the business when he has to cover his work-shift.

He enthusiastically tells us that he started this business because he enjoys sports and above all body building, which he considers to be very healthy recreation for the young people in his village. He is requesting the loan to purchase construction materials to improve the infrastructure of his home, which is where he has his gym. He needs it to look better so as to be more attractive for his clients.

One of his goals is to purchase more exercise machines and to promote sports more.
