Julio is 48 years old and married. Since he was very young, he has been enthusiastic about repairing bicycles, and he began by repairing his own. He continued little by little, and eventually opened his own shop for which he is asking for this loan. He will buy products to maintain his inventory and to keep up with demand. In the future, he hopes to update the storefront where he has his workshop.
