A loan helped to buy seafood and materials to provide barber services.


Tito Jerson's story

Tito Jerson is 21 years old and single. He is a university student in his fifth semester majoring in Civil Engineering. He lives with his parents and brothers in the city of Manta.

Tito is an enterprising young man. He constantly looks for opportunities that allow him to progress. As a result, he started a business selling seafood like fish, squid, shellfish, octopus amongst other seafood per his clients demand.

In his free time he also works as a graphic designer. Once in a while he works as a door-to-door barber. These additional services allow him to make a very good income with which he can help his parents and help pay for his studies.

He will use this loan to buy seafood and some barber materials. His dream is to be able to start a new business as a distributor of ice.
