Byron Oliver's story

Byron was born in Simón Bolívar and currently lives in Milagros. He is 18 years old and he lives with his parents. When he finished high school, he began his business with an advertisement in the newspaper.

"Without money, but with a desire for self-improvement, I began working at a distributor. My schedule was only in the morning. Later I offered products to friends and family members to gather the necessary capital to rent a business space."

He doesn't have a set schedule, but he keeps his business open from Monday to Sunday. He mainly sells smoothies made from vegetarian products and tea. Since his business space is rented, he tells us that the main inconvenience in his area are the drunks because of the noise that they make. He is going to invest the loan in products for his smoothies, tea, and aloe.
