Leyton Moises's story

Leyton, 26, lives in Libertad and works renting surfboards. He learned to surf at the Montañita beach that’s a 30-minute trip away. This location is known by sportsmen for its waves. When he learned the techniques he returned home to start teaching classes and the welcome he got led him to start his business. In this period of time he met his current girlfriend who he plans to marry at the end of this year. She was who encouraged him and lent him the money to acquire a small locale in Montañita. He tends to his shop with help from two assistants because they provide surfboard services, body boards and also sell accessories. One of his biggest problems is the weather because his business depends on the waves. He will use the loan he’s requesting to buy boards and accessories as well as tools to provide better repair and maintenance services. His greatest dream is to open a boutique with clothes and accessories for surfers.
