A loan of $1,675 helped to buy a slot machine to finance his university studies and to give his mother a better quality of life.

Julian David's story

Julián is 22 years old and his top priority is his university studies. His family does not have much money, but he says they have the strength that characterizes many Colombians. Since his family could not pay for Julián’s education, he decided to pay for his university studies himself.

Julián is very disciplined, so he saved to buy slot machines, which have become his main source of income. His mother oversees them in a small commercial location while he studies.

Julián is requesting this loan to buy a slot machine in order to improve his economic situation and to give his mother a better quality of life. His dream is to finish his university studies and graduate to become a distinguished professional.
