A loan of $1,100 helped to buy a cart to sell ready-made meals.


Julio Cesar's story

Julio Cesar runs a small grocery store in his home where he sells staple foods such as: rice, oil, sugar, plantains, carbonated drinks, juices, Gatorade, and dairy products like milk, cream, and butter.

Before he started his business, he was a secondary school teacher. He retired and with the money he received in his settlement, he started a business. Later, he requested a loan from Ceprodel to add more products to his store.

Currently, Julio has noticed that there are not any places that make quick meals in his town. This inspired him to a dream of having a mobile food-cart to make meals such as: hot dogs, hamburgers, and french fries.

He is requesting this loan to buy the cart thereby acquiring a source of income and a better quality of life.

He is married; his wife currently works in a government center. They have four children, three of which are adults and have their own jobs and one who is still in school.
