Julio Cesar's story

Julius Cesar is fifty years old. He is married with three children, ages 25, 23 and 6. The youngest child is still a dependent. The older two have jobs and are independent. Julius is from Chinandega Province. This is located in the west of the country. Julio works selling general merchandise. He buys and sells pants, blouses, shirts, dresses, skirts and underwear. His business is located in his house and he sells door-to-door. His daily routine consists of going door-to-door selling his goods to his regular customers. He provides them with credit and collects the payments every fifteen days. He began this business three years ago in order to have a way to provide economic support for his family. With the loans that have been provided by the Leon 2000 Foundation, he has been able to grow his business and gain more customers. He has paid his payments on time and as required. Julio is thankful to the investors from KIVA for the help that they provide to people with scarce resources and to countries like Nicaragua. It gives us a dignified life.
