Ruth Margarita


A loan of $1,375 helped to buy stock (liquor, beer, snacks, and basic household goods).


Ruth Margarita's story

At 58 years old, Ruth sells food products in a small store located in the city of Medellín. This allows her to earn the necessary income to support herself and her son. Her husband died years ago, so Ruth had to be father and mother at the same time.

Due to weather conditions, sales are still down, so she is applying for a loan to buy stock (liquor, beer, snacks, and basic household goods). Her goal is to broaden her array of services and reactivate sales.

She hopes to improve her economic condition and be able to enjoy old age without financial worries.
