Jhony Paul is 36 years old and lives with his mother in the Cayalti district. The inhabitants of his town, two hours from the city of Chiclayo, on Peru's northern coast, make a living in agriculture, running businesses and raising cattle.

Jhony has been making a living doing cutting, dying and styling hair for over ten years. He has a good customer base and is very well-known in the area for the good service he provides.

Jhony is an enterprising young man who has a applied for a loan of 2000 Nuevo Soles from "Edpyme Alternativa" in order to buy materials for his work - he will buy dyes, shampoos, hair lotions, and more. With this loan he can stock up his salon to offer more products to his customers and earning a higher living in order to support his mother.
