Julio Cesar's story

Julio Cesar, 68, is a widower who has provided for his three children with effort and sacrifice. He has worked in agriculture from a young age, mainly cultivating flowers on a plot of his property in Santa Elena, Colombia. He sells his products in the city of Medellín. He works daily from 5 a.m. until 5 p.m.

With the goal of expanding his cultivation, Julio is applying for a loan which he will invest in the purchase of supplies such as seeds and fertilizer. This will allow him to improve his earnings and his quality of life.

His greatest wish is to have a decent old age without financial hardship.
