Ruth Stella's story

Ruth is 52 years old and has had a passion for sales since she was very young, but she decide to be a stay home mother while her husband was responsible for providing for the household needs. Due to the financial crisis they suffered, Ruth decided to start a business and began selling products via catalog. This has provided her with good earnings and she wants to continue. She is asking for a loan to buy merchandise to have on hand and increase her sales.

Her greatest desire is to open her own store where she can not only sell via catalog, but also sell clothing and accessories. She feels very satisfied because thanks to her work the family’s living conditions have improved.
