A loan helped to buy plantains and rice.


Ramón Antonio's story

Ramón Antonio and his family live in Rocafuerte, which is known far and wide for its traditional artisanal sweets, made from recipes passed from generation to generation, and for growing rice.

Ramón Antonio sells plantains and rice by the quintal. The health crisis at first was very bad for him, because he could not sell. Now, little by little he is reactivating to be able to continue generating income.

This loan is to buy plantains and rice. His dream is to have a shop to continue his sales and that his family will have good health.
