A loan of $1,500 helped to buy a motorcycle to commute to work along with his wife.

Julio Fermín's story

Julio is 36 years old, married, and has one child. He used to work selling bread from a bicycle, for which he had to travel long distances. But because he very much wanted to get ahead, he studied his colleagues who were making the bread when he arrived to pick it up. In a short time he learned how to make it. To arrive at his work he has to get up very early because he lives far away. He walks on foot for 20 minutes from his home to the bus stop, and from there he takes the bus to the town where the bakery is located.

Julio is requesting this loan from Fundación Campo to buy a motorcycle to commute to his work along with his wife. With a motorcycle he would not have to get up so early in the morning, and he could use this time to do other activities in their home. Moreover, he would save money because the cost of the fuel the motorcycle would use is less than what he pays to ride the bus – and he would get to work more quickly. His dream is to start his own bakery to improve his income and to provide his family with better living conditions.
