He saved the money they paid him for his work and later, to help himself a little, he decided to request a loan to set up his own business. That was when he decided to start his own cobbler shop. He has the help of his wife and his children. Julio's requesting the loan to buy more supplies such as leather, soles, glue, and nails to make his shoes.
