Moisés Salomón
Moisés is 25 years old, married and has a son. He has been a barber for some 10 years. Before, he worked carrying bundles of merchandise to the women who sell in the market.

Facing the place where he passed was a barbershop, and when he had nothing to do, he began to sit there to see how they worked at the barbershop. One day one of the workers asked him if he wanted to learn and that was how he learned. Also he saw they that they earned good money, and he earned little and worked a lot.

He is applying to Fundación Campo for a loan to make a down payment on a house, as he is currently renting. He wants to take advantage of this opportunity, as having his own house has been one of his greatest dreams since he was a child. His father abandoned them and he has always had to rent. In addition he wants to send his son to school, as he didn't have that opportunity due to his mother's poverty.

Moisés tiene 25 años de edad, es casado y tiene un hijo. Él es peluquero desde hace unos diez años; antes trabajaba cargando bultos de mercadería a las señoras que venden en el mercado y frente al lugar donde pasaba estaba una peluquería, entonces cuando no tenia que hacer se iba a sentar ahí a ver como trabajaban en la peluquería; un día una de las trabajadoras le pregunto si quería aprender y fue así como él aprendió. También, el veía que ganaban muy bien y él ganaba poquito y trabaja mucho.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para dar un anticipo para comprar una casa; ya que actualmente esta alquilando. Esta oportunidad la quiere aprovechar; ya que es uno de sus más grandes anhelos desde niño, tener una casa propia; ya que su padre los abandono y siempre tuvieron que alquilar. Además, desea enviar a su hijo a la escuela, ya que él no tuvo esa oportunidad por la pobreza de su madre.
