Jorge Ramon's story

Jorge is from León. He is 66 years old, and for the past 10 years he has owned a neighborhood store. He started this business when the company he was working for closed, and with his severance pay he set up the store. He only sold sweets, bread and eggs at first, but over time he has gradually added more products. This business has also allowed him to take care of his mother, since he is the only one who takes responsibility for her.

He needs the loan to buy basic staple foods, oil, meat, chicken, cream, vegetables, cleaning products, snacks, juices, soft drinks, and milk. These are among the most popular products, consumed in large quantities by his customers. One of his goals is to be able to turn his store into a food distribution business.
