Marcos is a 54-year-old father who is married and has two children. He has worked in the shipping business and from this, has made enough funds to invest in two of his own businesses. His first business is the sale of construction materials and the second is providing telephone service to people for a fee. Both businesses are run by Marcos and his wife and they share the responsibilities.

With the profits he makes from these two businesses, Marcos wants to invest in buying more bricks, sand, and other construction materials. The demand is always high in the area of construction, yet exceptionally high during these next few months. The construction materials he sells are very scarce and it is hard to meet the demand of the customers.

Marcos is asking for a loan in order to purchase these items, to keep his business running smoothly and to continue to work towards a better life for his family.
