Rubén Darío's story

Ruben is 57 years old and is a mobile merchant who has been selling different size plastic bags and some items that his nephew sends him from the city for many years. His main customers are businesses in town and he is able to generate the income he needs to earn a living. He is an active and hardworking man and says that his age does not impede him. He lives alone and never married. He is asking for his third loan so he can buy merchandise in quantity (plastic bags of different sizes) and be able to satisfy his customer demand. This will help improve the income he gets from each sale. Ruben only wants to be able to continue his work with enthusiasm and dedication so that he can have a more tranquil future with better living conditions.
