Julio Roberto's story

Julio Roberto is 54 years old. He lives in the home of his grown daughter, and he works in retail trade. Julio is an enterprising man, and he has worked for many years to help his daughter get ahead and to enjoy a better quality of life. He is a businessman, and 29 years ago he was able to establish a small business in the central market of the town where he lives. This business is located in an area that is very well-traveled by the local inhabitants. They especially visit Julio's business, which offers a variety of products such as shoe polish, hair creams, glue, brushes, etc. Many people prefer his business because it is in a highly accessible place, and in addition, Julio is a very likable man who wins over customers with his charisma. He is requesting this loan from INTEGRAL to invest in his business by purchasing a variety of products to offer to his customers, so that he can attract new buyers and thus increase his income. With the loan, he will buy more items that are needed and sought after by his customers, such as thread, needles, hair creams, glue, paste, and lighters, along with many other products that his customers often request. In this way, he hopes to improve his quality of life.
