Ramon Elias's story

Ramon is 58 years old and is the father of three children. He has owned a small store for the past year, located in his home in the municipality of Sonson, in the eastern part of Antioquia, where he offers her neighbors basic products for consumption. Ramon has been a commercial vendor for 30 years, and he currently needs to buy a range of products like rice, "panela" natural sugar, oil, fruits and vegetables, which will allow him to offer a wide variety of products to his customers in order to improve his income and provide his family with a better quality of life. Ramon's dream is to buy his own store outside of his own house and have more space to sell his products and offer better service, as well as a home where he can live with his wife and three children.
