Rubén Darío's story

"There are people who are anxious about insignificant problems, while others are hopeful to see a better tomorrow despite their circumstances." With this quote, Rubén began telling us about his biggest difficulty in life. He was born and grew up in the municipality of Antioquia, from where he was displaced because of violence. He had to leave his hometown, and went to the city in search of job opportunities. When he didn't find formal work, he began selling fruit from a cart which he was provided with. Thanks to the profit he made in this way, he was able to set up a business in the city center selling glasses and other things. He is requesting a loan right now to use to buy merchandise for the Christmas season.
