Ciudad Real Group's story

Rufino Martínez is 45 years old and lives in Santa Anita district. He has an 18 year-old son who is still in his care and he pays for his studies. Rufino works as a public transport driver every day. He has been in this work for more than 12 years. He started his business when a family member suggested he buy a small vehicle which was available at a low price as it was a used vehicle. This is how he started his work driving his own vehicle. This business has been very rewarding financially and has enabled him to support his household and educate his son who will soon start university. In the future, he would like to leave this business and set up a butcher's shop.

Rufino will use this loan to invest in having his vehicle painted and having some technical checks done on it. Just like Rufino Martínez, each member of this group has a future goal and a great desire to get ahead and provide their households with the best financial stability possible.
