Marcos Antonio
Marcos has worked for two years making unburned bricks. He works independently and sells his bricks at wholesale price since the price of unburned brick varies by season and he tries to look for who will pay him the best price. His wife helps him financially making wedding dress trains and decorations. He has three children who are students at a public school.

Marcos is requesting the loan to purchase brick making material because they are more expensive during the rainy season and he wants to store the materials. He is a responsible and hardworking person and is very appreciative of the lending institution for the support provided.
