Julio Cesar's story

Julio, 49, is a native of the town of Telica in the city of León. He is married and has three children, one of whom is getting ready to study architecture. The youngest of his children is in elementary school, in sixth grade.

Julio makes a living as a street vendor selling clothing in his modest cart. He is located in a park in Telica, where he goes out early in the morning to sell t-shirts, shorts, pants, women's blouses, shirts, and pants for children. Previously he worked as a personal driver for a company. Later he was a taxi driver but he has had his clothing business for five years.

He needs the loan to buy clothing for children, youth, and adults, to take advantage of Christmas sales and improve his sales, because he spends part of what he earns on his children's education, which is the most important thing for him.

In addition, in the future he wants to expand into selling in different towns such as El Sauce, Malpiasillo, and Quezalguaque. He also wants to buy a cart and mannequins to display his clothes and better present his merchandise.
