Ruth's story

Ruth is a sweet, cheerful girl, who is dedicated to her work. She was not able to finish her high school studies due to having suffered complications at birth that impeded her scholastic development. Due to these complications, she has had to be under continual medical care since she was born. Ruth lives with her mother, who is her only company. She and her mother share a business of selling snacks and soft drinks. With the earnings from the business, Ruth is able to purchase her medications; however, this is insufficient to cover all of her costs. At this time, Ruth and her mother want to expand and increase their business, which is why Ruth is requesting a loan. The loan proceeds will be repaid within a 6-month period.
