Ricardo's story

Ricardo, 70 years old, has worked for several years in different businesses in his area, but the salaries started to go down and he took the step of retiring, and with his savings starting his own everyday food sales business.

Ricardo has earned recognition in his municipality due to the quality of the service offered. This is what makes his business stand out.

Currently, he's requesting a loan that he'll invest in the purchase of grains, toiletries, meats, dairy products, sodas, beer, baked goods, and legumes.

With this investment, he hopes to improve his profits and earn greater income in order to enlarge his business and turn it into the best one in the municipality.
