Ramón's story

Ramón J., 49, has been married to Fidencia Gómez for over 30 years; they have four children, two of whom are themselves married and two still minors living at home with their parents.

Ramón has sold medicines like: analgesics, tranquilizers, decongestants, digestion aids, bandages, disposable diapers, etc. for over 15 years; he buys all his products in San Lorenzo’s municipal market.

Once he has secured his stock items he drives his motorcycle, which is equipped with an attached cargo bed to carry his wares, through the city’s different neighborhoods.

He will use the funds to buy medicines that are of common use during winter when temperatures drop and people are more exposed to weather changes.
