Ronal Javier's story
Ronal is 22 and finished high school. He lives with his wife (who sells clothes for a living) and their three-year old son. Ronal, who is always full of energy, also sells clothes and has been in business for three years. He complements his income with a job delivering invoices for utility companies. Ronal wakes up very early in the morning and departs after breakfast to do his rounds. He used to sell clothes through a catalogue. Ronal's rounds last from 8 am to 4 pm and he always goes to the same areas, where he has many customers. He will use the loan to buy shirts, blouses, trousers, skirts, dresses, underwear, and other items of clothing for men, women, and children. He will thus replenish his stock and increase his family's income. His dream is to make more business and reach more customers in a wider area in order to better support his family.
