Bayron Jorge's story

Bayron Jorge and his family live in Portoviejo, a city that was affected by the earthquake of April 16, 2016, and now by the COVID-19 pandemic. The city is rich in the production of vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruits for domestic consumption.

Baryon Jorge and his father are dealers in clothing. They distribute to small business owners who have their little stalls in the city. In a small truck, they go through the city and to other places, offering merchandise where it has been requested, and leaving it on credit with their customers. They sell both wholesale and retail.

At the beginning [of the pandemic], the social isolation left him without work because of the fear of transmission and all the restrictions on going out. But now he is meeting the biosecurity protocols.

This loan is to buy t-shirts, pants, shorts, blouses, etc.

His dream is to have his own truck and for his family to have good health.
