Bayron Jorge's story

Bayron Jorge is 21 years old, single, and lives at his parents' house in Portoviejo, a city with many tourist attractions that include a mix of beaches and rural landscapes.

Bayron is a hardworking young man who seeks to earn an income so that he can forge a better future. He works with his father by buying and selling bananas. Almost every day, they travel to various rural communities to buy bananas and other fruits from farmers. They take their products to the wholesale market where they sell to smaller retailers who always buy from them.

This loan will be used to buy bananas. Bayron dreams of having a truck of his own.
