A loan of $500 helped to buy a chair for his barber shop.

Guadalupe Enrique's story

Guadalupe has two children, ages ten and seven. He works at a barber shop. In spite of studying architecture, which is a career without much demand, he did not give up. He looked for another way to survive. That is why he established his own barber business, which he has had for four years.

He went to Panamá to work, and he took a barber course. Upon returning he established the business, while always having the vision of progressing and helping his family get ahead.

He is requesting the loan to buy a chair for his barbershop. He only has one now, and he needs another in order to take care of his customers. This way he will be able to provide better service.

His dream is to manage to prepare his children with an education, to provide them with a decent roof over their heads, and to expand his barber business, which he enjoys doing.
