Byron was born in Simón Bolívar and currently lives in Milagros. He is 18 years old and he lives with his parents. When he finished high school, he began his business with an advertisement in the newspaper.
"Without money, but with a desire for self-improvement, I began working at a distributor. My schedule was only in the morning. Later I offered products to friends and family members to gather the necessary capital to rent a business space."
He doesn't have a set schedule, but he keeps his business open from Monday to Sunday. He mainly sells smoothies made from vegetarian products and tea. Since his business space is rented, he tells us that the main inconvenience in his area are the drunks because of the noise that they make. He is going to invest the loan in products for his smoothies, tea, and aloe.
Byron nació en Simón Bolívar, actualmente vive en Milagros. Tiene 18 años de edad vive con sus padres. Cuando termino el colegio empezó su negocio por un anuncio en el periódico. Sin dinero pero con el deseo de superarme comencé a trabajar en una distribuidora, mi horario era solo por las mañanas. Luego ofrecí los productos a amigos y familiares para reunir el capital necesario y alquilar un local. No tiene horario fijo pero mantiene su negocio abierto de lunes a domingos. Principalmente vende batidos a base de productos vegetarianos, te. Como su local es alquilado nos cuenta que en la zona su principal inconveniente son los borrachos por la bulla que hacen. El préstamo lo va a invertir en la compra de productos para sus batidos, te y aloe.
