A loan of $1,025 helped to update kitchen equipment (pots, knives, pans) and to purchase provisions (meat, potatoes, noodles) for his banquet business.


Ramiro's story

Ramiro is single. He is 32 years old and lives with his parents in La Paz, in a cement and brick house that has electricity, water, and sewer, but not gas.

Ramiro is a chef by profession, and has tough working conditions when he has to work overtime on weekends. Ramiro is at risk of burns in his profession.

He needs the loan to update kitchen equipment (pots, knives, pans) and to buy provisions (meat, potatoes, noodles) in large quantities for his banquet business.

Ramiro is the only source of income in his home, which is why he needs help.
