A loan of $1,300 helped to buy groceries to sell in his store.


Julio's story

Julio is a 42-year-old married man. He currently lives with his wife and five children in the Department of Sololá.

Julio currently has a grocery store that is located a few meters from his home. He chose this business because it is profitable and productive. It also allows him to contribute to his family’s finances. In addition, Julio works as a bricklayer. Both jobs enable him to help his family get ahead.

Now that he has had his grocery business for several years, Julio is generating good income and earnings. At the moment, he has decided to request a loan of 10,000 GTQ in order to buy everyday consumer products. This will allow him to offer better service to his customers and increase his revenue.

One of Don Julio’s dreams is to build a house for his children so that they will have a place in the future where they can live.
