Ricardo Jose's story

Ricardo, 39 years old, lives in the municipality of San Luis de Since, Colombia. He works at his business making and selling food, work he taught himself to do, dedicating all his time and commitment to it.

He currently works daily, focusing on his goals of expansion and generating jobs. In search of making his dream a reality, Ricardo is asking for a loan, which he will invest in the purchase of inventory such as meat and other food with the end of producing more. He expects that, with this investment, he will be able to improve his production and sales capacity.
