Ramona's story

Ramona is 51-years old, married, and has six children. In her business, which is 15-years old, she sells all types of consumables. The loan will be used to buy all kinds of merchandise for the typical buyer, keeping her store well-stocked. The income from her business allows her to cover her family's household expenses as well as education costs.

At first it was difficult to start her business, as she didn't have much starting capital and her initial investments were thanks to her savings and the help of her husband, who was able to obtain some money.

In this enterprise Ramona has the support and company of her two older children, who help her to attend to the store on the days when she has to leave to make purchases and are very responsible in their work.
