Ruth Mery's story

Mrs. Ruth lives in the town of Guardia. Her husband works in construction, and she works part-time as a cleaning women and sells clothing door-to-door too. She has been selling clothes for two years. The loan will be used to buy mason's tools for her husband. They live in a house that they have almost paid off. They have two children, and it is difficult to pay for their school fees. She was born in the department of Beni, a cattle region, and she came to live in Guardia at a young age in search of more opportunity. She is an old client of the institution, and she feels satisfied and thankful for the support.
