Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos is 18 years of age and an active, energetic, and enterprising young man. After finishing high school, he decided to continue earning income on his own so that he could support his household financially and help his parents. For this reason, Carlos decided to open a barber shop with one of his friends (seen in the photo is his business partner). This is why he is requesting the support of his first loan. He will buy two barber chairs, two vanities, one washing station, clippers, and supplies (gel, shaving cream, and shampoo) so that he can launch his business idea. Carlos says that he has an advantage since there is no competition nearby, so people will get to know him and he can gradually increase his clientele. This will ultimately be reflected in the amount of income he can generate. Carlos also wants to create one additional job. In other words, there will be two people providing barber services and another person in charge of managing the business and selling additional merchandise that he wants to include in his inventory (men’s shirts, jeans, caps, and belts). Carlos wants to fulfill his dream of earning his own income and helping his family with the financial responsibilities. As a result, he and his family can improve their quality of life in the midterm.
