A loan of $575 helped to buy stationery.


Ruth's story

Rut, 49, is the mother of two minor children. She loves her family and considers them to be the motor that propels her daily to make the effort to offer them better opportunities and guarantee them a good education.

Three years ago she decided to set up her own business, dedicated to selling stationary. She works daily from 9 in the morning until 6 in the afternoon with the purpose of being able to share more time with her family. She loves what she does and thanks God for the opportunity that he has given her, that of being able to generate her own income.

Today she wishes to be able to improve the selection at her business, which is why she is requesting a loan that she will use to buy stationery so she can satisfy the needs of her clients.

Her biggest dream is to be able to pay for her children's university studies because she believes that will be the best gift she can give them.
