Ruben Dario's story

Ruben started his restaurant 2 years ago when he decided to work independently and start his own business. Having worked in several places for many years, he became frustrated because of the very low wages he was paid. Upon making this change, the quality of life of his wife and two children has improved significantly and his household income has increased thanks to his efforts at the restaurant. His main obstacle is nearby competition since he is located in an area where there are many restaurants. However, his hard work allows him to progress with his business and differentiate it from the rest. Ruben needs a loan to improve his business place in order to offer a better service to his customers, thus improving his sales. His dream is to improve his family's quality of life and to offer his 2 children access to a better quality education.
