Rony's story

Rony is 35 years old and married. He is a businessperson, and says he has a bookstore and photocopier in his home, and that his wife Maria makes accessories and crafts to sell in his bookstore.

He says that with a great deal of effort, both he and his wife are striving to improve their living conditions and see their business grow. He is requesting this loan so that he can invest it in supplies for his bookstore, such as notebooks, books, pens, markers and other items, and this way be able to continue selling.

He is grateful for this opportunity that he and his wife are receiving. In the loan photo both appear; Rony and his wife, who is the co-borrower.
