Gerson Jonathan
Gerson Jonathan A. C., 21, lives in San Martín, San Salvador department, with his family, which is made up of his mother and three younger siblings, who are in elementary school. Gerson has a bakery in which he makes pan dulce (a type of bread made with flour, honey or sweets; its flavor is similar to a cookie). Gerson bakes the bread and then distributes to his customers. It's worth mentioning that he has a set route along which he distributes his bread. Although his bakery is only a year old, he has a very good reputation for being very responsible and always making his deliveries on time. He is requesting funding to buy flour, eggs, and the other needed ingredients for his bread. At his young age, Gerson is a young man who has taken responsibility for his business, struggling daily to provide support for his family. His family members help out with the business but it's Gerson who carries the main responsibility for running the bakery throughout the day.

Gerson posee una panadería en la cual se encarga de elaborar pan dulce (nombre el cual se le da al pan, el cual es hecho a base de harina, con miel o dulces, y su sabor es muy parecido al de las galletas). Gerson se encarga de elaborar el pan que luego sale a repartir a sus clientes, cabe mencionar que él cuenta con la ventaja de poseer una ruta trazada en la cual va entregando su producto. A pesar que cuenta con un año de poseer la panadería, él cuenta con muy buena reputación, por ser una persona muy responsable quien siempre entrega los pedidos a tiempo. Es por ello que solicita un préstamo a través del cual cuente con el dinero necesario para comprar mayor cantidad de harina, huevos, y todos los productos necesarios para la elaboración del pan. A su corta edad, Gerson es un joven el cual ha tomado la responsabilidad de un negocio, esforzándose a diario por llevarles el sustento diario a su familia, la cual colabora en el negocio, pero a pesar de esto es Gerson quien se encarga de administrar la panadería a lo largo del día.
