Ricardo Javier's story

Señor Ricardo Javier is the father of three children. For the last five years, he's had a small sales stall in one of the markets in León, where he sells tortillas and plastic bags. Señor Ricardo starts working at 3:00am making tortillas. He later transfers them to his sales stall, where he also sells all types of plastic bags to his customers. He does this work to support his family.

Señor Ricardo is requesting the loan to purchase metal sheeting, beams and screws to make improvements to his humble abode. Winter is approaching, and the improvements will allow him to offer his small children more comfort and improve their quality of life.
