A loan helped to buy a motor for the canoe he uses for transportation.


Julio Cesar's story

Julio is native to the municipality of Puerto Salgar. He is an honorable, honest and helpful man who through his desire to get ahead and fight for his future decided to open a construction business in 2013.

At 44 years of age he has one son. His biggest dream is to pay for the education of his son and to improve their living conditions.

Working independently has been a big stimulus. He has improved his quality of life and he aspires to provide employment, own his home, travel, and enjoy life. Every day that he gets up to work he is aware of his family and his desires and this motivates him to give the best of himself.

Julio is requesting a loan to buy a motor for the canoe he uses for transportation. This will enable him to increase his production, grow his inventory and aspire to gain better profits.
