Balvino Ramiro's story

Balvino Ramiro A. P. is from Coxomo of the Patzarajmac canton in the Totonicapán department of Guatemala. He is located 6 kilometers from the city. He needs a loan to stock his store with merchandise to grow his business. He sells daily household consumables with the help of his wife, who is responsible for attending to the customers. In order to sell his products at the lowest price, Don Balvino purchases most of his goods in large quantities from suppliers in the city of Quetzaltengo. Also, he owns a nixtamal mill in his store and he is looking for a person to work the mill from six in the morning to six in the afternoon, occasionally working until the evening.
