Ruth Susana's story

Ruth makes a living selling juice, bread, and food. She lives with her parents and a dependent child. She has worked in this business for 15 years with her mother. She makes her sales at a stall at a bus stop, where she sets up shop. She learned this business from her mother. It's the only income her family has, but her strength is the location of the business in a well-traveled area.

She's requesting a loan to buy CDs and DVDs to sell. She'll also buy soda, oil, meat, chicken, and vegetables for her bread and food business.

This loan will help her business grow because she'll be able to respond better to customer demand.

Her goals are to have a better financial situation through her business, which will allow her to contribute what's necessary to cover her child's and her parents' expenses.
