Julio Cesar's story

Julio Cesar is a twenty-seven year old man who decided to begin his own business two years ago. His business is metal construction, or spot welding. Thanks to his determination and dedication, he succeeded in studying this art and knows a lot about it. It is good to know that Julio Cesar not only knows about spot welding, but he also loves his work and is passionate about it. These sentiments constantly help him to get ahead.

Julio Cesar has a small family, made up of his wife and little daughter. These two are his primary motivation, and he is always looking to offer them the best in life and to help them get ahead. He wants them to have a good quality of life, and also to enjoy every day.

With the help of the Kiva loan funders, Julio Cesar will be able to purchase a spot welding machine, which he needs. He would also like to remodel his shop so that his customers will feel comfortable when they enter it. His hope and goal is to continue in this business, and with hard work, to get ahead, improving his small business and converting it into one of the best in the San Clemente neighborhood, where he lives. Julio Cesar is very grateful, and is sure that with this help, which he is beginning to receive, he will achieve great things. He is aware that this is the best way to create the revenue necessary to help his daughter become a great professional. Of course, he is also enamored of his profession, since he believes that it is the best way to accomplish what he wants and to live happily.
