Edison Cristhoper's story

Edison Cristhoper is 22 years old. He is in a free-union relationship and has a 10-month-old son. His partner goes to school. They live in his in-laws' house in the canton of Jaramijo, which is known as a small cove of fishermen.

Edison Cristhoper is a happy, friendly, and at the same time very hard-working young man who makes an effort every day to earn his own economic income, which allows him to continue with his business. Five months ago he installed a little store in his house, offering a variety of products such as groceries, beverages, and dairy products, among other products that can satisfy the needs of his customers. It is in this way that he can get ahead, along with his family.

He will invest this loan in his store in order to increase the variety of products for daily use.

His dream is that his business will continue growing progressively.
