A loan of $1,325 helped to make concrete slabs for his home.

Julio Cesar's story

Julio is from the city of Monclova Coah, but when he was little his parents and him moved to Piedras Negras, where he has lived for 20 years. From a young age, his parents taught him and his siblings how to run a crackling and barbeque business, because they had always had one. Today, he has his own business selling crackling and barbequed food, and through a lot of sacrifice, has built up regular customers.

He goes out in his truck to sell his food, which is all made by hand by his wife, Flor. Despite the fact that she works in a well-known factory in the city, she helps out her husband with the business in her free time, cooking the food.

Julio is asking for support from Kiva to finish building his home, more specifically a concrete slab, so that his family is proud of him and is able to live comfortably. In the future, when his home is completed, he also intends to set up a permanent sales outlet from which to sell his crackling and barbequed food in addition to his truck.
