Yeison Alexander's story

Yeison is 23 years old and has lived his whole life in the town of Ceja, Colombia. Since he was a boy his passion has been for drawing. He says that he has always been recognized in his class for having the best drawings. His father and brother also did the same and this allowed him to develop his potential as a painter. Now he paints in oils, art marquetry and country, which allows him to generate support for his mother and sister since the death of his father.

He is asking for a loan which he will use to buy a hair knife (art country) and supplies (paints, cloth, frames). He hopes that this investment will increase his income and he can become an internationally known painter.
