A loan of $1,200 helped for paper and a copying machine.

Ronald Antonio's story

Ronald is single. He chose this activity because while studying at the university he noticed that there wasn’t any place there to make copies and buy office supplies. He decided to save up and take out a loan to buy a copying machine and a paper guillotine in order to make bindings and copies for the students at said university.

He works Monday through Friday from 8am until 6pm and on Saturdays until 2pm. He makes all kinds of copies but also binds books, laminates and creates three-ring binders. He complements this with the sale of office supplies. When he has to attend classes his siblings help him out with the business. He will use the loan to buy reams of paper, office supplies and a color copier.

Ronald’s goal is to complete his university studies and expand his business where he wants to install Internet access so that the university students can do their research.
