A loan of $250 helped to buy clothing.


Julio Cesar's story

Julio is from Granada. He’s 35 years old, married, and has three children, ages 6, 8, and 12; they all go to school. He is a merchant and sells clothing and rents out chairs. He started working on his own, renting out chairs, with his wife’s help, who motivated him to start his own business because they needed extra money to provide for the family. This has been his only business but he has another income from his salary as a physical education teacher. He wants to diversify his business with more products that he doesn’t have now and to be able to buy the things that his customers request.

He is asking for this loan to buy clothing such as blouses, skirts, dresses, etc. He estimates that this loan will be of great help because it will allow him to buy all the merchandise that he needs to satisfy his customer demand. He plans to grow his business in the future so that he can have better sales opportunities. His next goal is to buy clothing to increase his sales and earn greater profits.
