A loan of $825 helped to buy more merchandise for his grocery store.


Julio Cesar's story

Julio César will be able to buy more merchandise for his grocery store with 31,500 pesos. Julio César has been in this business for a little over one year after having lost his job and has a recently born baby. He took some of his savings and unemployment compensation that he received and decided ot open a grocery store. Now the child is 18 months old and his store has done very well. With the store he is able to support his family. His wife is a housewife who cares for the child and helps out with the store from time to time. Julio César's dream is that business continues doing well as he does not want to return to being an employee, but wants to have the control of his finances in his own hands.
