Ruth's story

Ruth, age 29, is the mother of two children. She lives in Buchanan with her husband, who is a businessman. One of her children stays with her at home, and the other one stays with her aunt.

Ruth has been selling rice, cooking oil, peppers, onions and other items in her community for the past 15 years. Because of the good interaction with her customers, she makes a lot of profit. With the profit, she buys more goods to improve her sales and help her husband with the expenses of the home.

Ruth is requesting this loan to purchase more cooking oil, peppers, rice and onions for the business in order to meet the demands of her customers. Her future plan is to buy land and build a house.
