A loan of $1,250 helped to buy vegetables, groceries, drinks, and other items.


Ruben's story

Ruben has been married to Fermina for several years and they have three young children who are still in elementary school. Together they set up a grocery store in their home which they started with a little bit of capital they had earned previously as salaried workers. Thanks to the work they are doing, they are able to educate their children and are getting ahead. In addition to working in the store, Ruben provides alternative transportation in the city center.

Ruben is asking for this loan so he can invest it in supplies for his store such as vegetables, groceries, drinks, and other things so that he can continue to work. He appreciates this opportunity to continue working.
