A loan helped to buy a barber’s chair so that he can continue his business.


Juan Emilio's story

Juan studied through high school. He is in a relationship and has a child. His partner takes care of the household duties.

Juan has a barber shop and learned his trade at the age of 12 from his father. He works every day from 6:45 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.

Juan needs a loan to buy a barber’s chair so that he can continue his business. He dreams of working hard so that he can help his family. Above all else, he wants to provide for his child’s education.
