Julio Roberto’s story

Julio is 31 years old. He is single. He lives with his parents. He is characterized as being hard-working, enterprising, and sociable. He has been selling consumer products for two years. His job is to go out on days when fairs are held to all of the neighborhoods to offer these same products that have allowed him his main source of income for his and his family’s existence. Thanks to his eagerness to get ahead, he has managed to have good sales due to the big demand that exists for these products. Therefore, he needs to purchase more products, such as rice, sugar, napkins, toilet paper, soap, and other products more necessary for the business. In the future, he wants to be a leading provider in the market, offering a quality, efficient, and timely service to all of his customers. 

Translated from Spanish by View original language description 

This loan is special because:

This loan is designed to help these vulnerable populations improve their lives and set up sustainable businesses.
