Ricardo's story

Ricardo Benítez A. is 38 years old. He is single and has one daughter. He lives in his parents' house and is a businessman.
He has owned a quarry in the town of Arrua'i since 2000. He extracts a large quantity of stone every day, supplying neighbouring areas and nearby cities. He is currently excavating around 130 loads of stone per week, for the various areas mentioned above.
Ricardo has regular customers who work exclusively with him.
He tells us that he is very grateful for the trust shown in him by granting him a loan, and that he will continue working daily to prove himself worthy of that trust. That way, he will be able to keep receiving loans in the future.
Ricardo requested the loan to pay his workforce and buy fuel, since the workload has increased to supply an order for many loads of stone, and he wants to meet his customers' requirements.
