Julio Cesar's story

Julio Cesar is 32 years old and lives in the city of Concepción. He’s married to Silveria and they have two children, a two year old girl and a six year old son who attends the elementary school in Belén.

Julio has been working as a mechanic for more than 15 years. He began as an assistant and later he and a partner began setting up their own shop at his father-in-law’s house. His partner retired two years ago and he became the sole proprietor of the shop, which is still at his father-in-law’s house.

Julio has been living with his wife and two children in his own home for eight months but not everything is finished. One of his dreams is to move his shop to his own home and he will do so when his house is finished.

He is asking for this loan in order to buy tools for his shop. He is very grateful to the Foundation for the opportunity it provides him.
