Juan Ramón
View original language description ↓
Juan Ramon is known for selling meat in the Somotillo market. He has been doing this for 15 years and has earned the appreciation of many clients who visit his business daily to buy beef.

In spite of his difficult economic situation, he has sacrificed a lot in order to move forward and give his 3 kids what they need to survive, such as food, a good home and an education so that they will do well as professionals in the future.

Nowadays his biggest need is the acquisition of meat to sell, and this is why he is looking for support from Ceprodel so that he can benefit from their loans that will allow him to buy meat to sell in the Somotillo market where he works.
