Julio César's story

Julio is a hardworking man who has sold crafts from his stall in the center of town for 28 years. Some of the crafts he makes himself because he has attended training courses in leatherwork and shoe making offered by a government organization. Julio wishes to use the loan money to buy supplies such as leather and other materials to make sandals, wallets, and belts as well as other items. His dream is to have larger premises where he can both make and sell the products. He also would like to grow his business and increase income.
