Ramón Elías's story

Ramón, 56, is married with one son. He has made a living as an independent salesman for 25 years, which has given him resources to sustain his family. His business consists of buying wholesale vegetables in the municipality of Unión and reselling them in another municipality in the eastern part of Antioquia. He obtains a better profit because he is taking advantage of the opportunity to be a well-known salesman throughout the region and he has fixed clients.

Ramón is an intelligent, sharp, active man. He is committed to his family and he always searches for options that allow him to succeed along with them. Therefore, he has applied for a loan to invest in the purchase of wholesale vegetables, especially sacks of potatoes, to continue with his business and achieve higher earnings every day. He will then be able to move closer to fulfilling one of his biggest dreams, which is to acquire his own property for his business and to have a higher income. As a result, his family will have a better quality of life and he will be able to give his son an excellent education which will offer him a prosperous and successful future.
