Julio Cesar's story

Julio is 47 years old, married, has four children, and lives in the municipality of San Pedro Sula, Cortes. Julio worked for several years in the private sector, and now that he has been fired he helps his wife with their business. 15 years ago he and his wife started a small grocery where they sell staple foods, vegetables, dairy products, sausages, pastas, soft drinks, bread, lard, flour, etc. Because of the Christmas season, he has requested a loan of 30,000 HNL to stock up on products such as meats, bread, soft drinks, cell phone credit top-ups, canned products and other merchandise to sell. His future goal is to expand the store to make a better profit.
