Julia's story

Julia is from the city of Luque. She is married to Mr. Pantaleon and has 3 children, all of whom are grown, and for whom she and her husband have fought and worked hard all of their lives. Julia has had a fast food restaurant since 2009 where she works and has created a good clientele.

She is a hardworking person who always wants to keep growing so that she can have more income and improve day-to-day life for herself and her family. She has requested a loan to invest in the purchase of ingredients for her restaurant like drinks, snacks, etc, so that she can offer a greater variety of products to her customers. She is thankful for this opportunity, as it wil be of great help to her.
