Julio's story

Julio is a member of the group called Mujeres Unida (united women), located in the city of Samana. This is his 9th loan, which he will use to improve his house. He has had his business for over four years, starting with the first loan he took with Esperanza Internacional. After his last loan, which he invested in his business of selling fried food, he has developed his business. He has paid all his past loans on time. Julio is asking for a loan to improve his house by building a floor, which is now made of ground that he will change for a cement floor.

Esperanza Internacional runs a program for their good clients who are reliable in paying back their loans, who have fulfilled the commitment to grow their business and who have shown fidelity in their groups. This allows them to take out a loan to improve the structure of their house at the same time as running their business and attending their group meetings.

Julio is a married man with a child, and he is dedicated to his business of selling fried food every morning and night. He is very excited, because with this loan he will provide better conditions in his house that will be healthier for his family. He thanks God, Esperanza Internacional and all of you for this opportunity.
