Dorian's story

Dorian is 26 years old. He is unmarried and has no children yet. He worked for several years as a construction worker and this activity provided the income for the household expenses. As a complimentary activity, he took a barber course at a beauty school in his city. Four months ago he used his savings to open a barber shop in the neighborhood where he lives, taking advantage of being the only person providing this kind of service in the area. Dorian is an energetic, active man, with vision and a desire to get ahead in life. He is always looking for options to move forward and this is why he is asking for a loan. He will invest the money in the purchase of a hairdresser chair and a trimmer shaver. This will allow him to offer a more agile service, increasing his profit by attracting more customers looking for an excellent service. Dorian's dream is to make his business grow, and be recognized in the neighborhood. He also plans to introduce the sale of beauty products to further increase profits. This will allow him to improve the quality of life for him and his mother.
