Ruben's story

Señor Rubén V. O. is 53 years old and lives in a low-income neighborhood called "Barrio Laureles Norte," where the residents lack adequate security and hygiene. He is married and he and his spouse have had a small business for 11 years, which is a small grocery store. They have a daughter who is 10 years old who is currently in primary school. They wish to take out this loan to invest in their business, so that they can generate a higher income that will lead to a positive change in their standard of living. They yearn for their daughter to attain a successful professional education and become a good citizen in this society.
