Julio is 36 years old and lives with Juana, who is 31. The couple has two children, 7 and 5 years old, who attend elementary school.
Julio started working in construction with his father at a very young age, which he still does to this day. Also, thanks to the effort and help of his wife, the couple has been able to start a small, well-stocked grocery store based out of their home. The store has produced excellent economic results. The store sells milk, which Julio and Juana obtain from from their four cows, which produce a substantial amount of milk.
Julio is applying for this loan in order to purchase merchandise such as flour, rice, noodles, oil, etc., to better stock their small grocery store.
