Ramon's story

Mr. Ramon has been selling over-the-counter medicines and polythene bags in the cities in the vicinity of San Lorenzo for several years. He is a very hard working person and thanks to his traveling street vending he is progressing and therefore has the necessary means that allow him to help his family. He wants to continue growing and working, this is why he is requesting this loan, to be able to purchase over the counter medicines, all purpose bags, etc. and in this way be able to continue his sales.
