Julio Enrique's story

"I am a hardworking man, and I have learned to work and search for a livelihood with dignity." With these words, Julio, 40, says that he has been selling watches, hats, and lotion for twenty years. He travels constantly through the streets of the municipality of Caucasia, Colombia, offering his products for sale.

His two children, ages four and six, are his greatest concern, as he dreams of guaranteeing them a quality education and better living conditions.

He is currently applying for a loan to buy merchandise with the goal of increasing his sales and improving his earnings.
