Julio's story

Julio is 66 years old, married and has five adult children. The family lives together in a house that they own. Julio works selling homemade desserts. He sells all types of biscuits, sweets, cakes, and refreshing drinks. Julio has a small bakery at the city's busiest market. He works from 8am until 7pm. All of Julio's customers leave satisfied and with a desire to return again soon as the desserts are excellent. With eleven years of experience in this work, Julio has been able to find the perfect taste for his desserts. Julio always works alone. When serving customers he does not need help but, when preparing the sweets, he needs to be able to count on his wife's assistance. On this occasion Julio is applying for a loan of 1500 Nuevo Soles. He is grateful to everybody who is providing this opportunity to take out the loan that he needs in order to continue work. Julio also promises to make his repayments on time. Julio will use this loan to buy ingredients such as eggs, butter, flour, fruits and sweets.
