Ramiro
Ramiro is from the town of El Cedral in the neighboring state of San Luis Potosí. When he was six years old, his parents emigrated to the city of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, seeking a better quality of life.

They began to work in street markets, and the young Ramiro helped his parents. In time he was at the head of the small business, where he sold boxes of matches, paper bags and kitchen twine. The sales barely left him enough to eat.

In 1982 Ramiro married Sandra; and from that marriage, three children were born, who are now in school. With his wife's help, the business began growing, and adding to the variety of items for sale. Later they added sales of parts for household appliances.

With the requested loan, they will increase their inventory, which will allow them to earn greater profits and that way help their children.

Ramiro and his wife are the ones who run the business and they feel very hopeful of achieving their objective.
