Jinson Alberto's story

Jinson lives in Playas. Fifteen years ago he started out by selling a plot of land that was in development. The money from the lot helped him and he decided to start his own business selling grilled meats, kebabs and corn on the cob. He currently owns a cart he uses to sell ‘chuzos’ (skewered meat) and grilled corn on the cob and he’s gradually grown; today he has a good clientele.

He works at his business from 6:30pm until 12:30 at night. He has no difficulties. He’s married and his wife works selling ‘corviches’ [deep-fried, filled plantain balls] outside their house. He has three children but they are all adults now living independently.

He wants to use the loan to buy cured meats, meats and beverages. His dream is to be able to buy cement, sand and stone to finish building his house.
