Ruben R. is 52 years old and is married to Clementia Miranda. They have three children. They have been living in the Empalado Ari neighborhood for 15 years and have their own home.
Ruben has been a merchant since 2003. He started off as an employee of a traveling merchant and with the help of a loan from this institution he was able to accomplish his most desired project which was to form his own business.
He is currently expanding his commercial space which is the reason he is requesting a new loan to complete the necessary capital. In the near future he wants to increase his stock in merchandise. He wishes that in his country there were better education and more sources of work. Translated from Spanish by Cindy M., Kiva Volunteer.
