Julio is a father with a 20-year-old son. He lives in the Port-au-Prince area with his wife and his son. He has been living in his neighborhood since 2000. He is well known mostly in his church since he is one of the worship leaders there.
In the past, he used to sell honey and grocery products, but now he is very excited to become an Enèji Pwòp retailer. He will be selling Land Enèji pwòp, Sunking Pro, Powapak, and recho gaz blan (1 ak 2 plas). Now that Julio has a good understanding about the Enèji pwòp products, he will be able to help his clients when they have questions. A loan will enable him to get that started and get back on his feet again. He attends a church that has about 800 members that is mainly his target market.
