David Stiven's story

David, age 18, is a young visionary who has great hopes of getting ahead. His skills as a barber turned him into a prominent figure in his town. For this reason, he wants to start his own business and improve his family’s economic condition.

David currently works as a barber in the town of Copacabana, Colombia. However, his salary is not enough to cover his basic needs. He dreams of enrolling at the university and helping his mother with the household expenses. For this reason, he is requesting a loan so that he can pursue his business idea. The loan will be invested in a barber station, a barber chair, and equipment such as razor blades. These items are essential elements for launching his business.
