Marco Tulio
Marco Tulio is 53 years old and married. His wife devotes herself to the household chores, and sometimes she helps him in the field. He has eight children. Two of them are independent, and the other six live with them at home.

Ever since he was very young Marco worked as a day laborer. He does not earn much money, but he always puts aside a little to save. Marco had the idea that he could raise pigs. Every now and then he buys a pig and raises it until is it big enough to sell. Then, with the small earnings that are left, he buys another pig, raises it, sells it, and so on.

Marco is requesting this loan to buy 22 pigs and to set up a small farm on the patio of his house. That way he will be able to fully commit to raising pigs. His main advantage is that you can sell pigs for a good price even though it is hard work.

His biggest dream is to see his children graduate.

This is his third cycle with FAMA, and he has made his payments punctually.

Marco Tulio, tiene 53 años de edad, es casado y su esposa se dedica a los quehaceres del hogar y a veces le ayuda con el trabajo de campo, es padre de 8 hijos, de los cuales dos ya son independientes y los otros seis viven junto con ellos en el hogar. Desde muy joven Don Marcos se dedica a trabajar como jornalero y gana muy poco dinero pero siempre aparta un poquito de este para ahorrarlo. Don Marcos a visualizado que puede dedicarse a criar cerdos, ya que de vez en cuando va comprando un cerdo y lo cria hasta que este esta lo suficientemente grande para venderlo, luego de las pocas ganancias que le quedan compra otro cerdo y lo cria y lo vende y así sucesivamente. Don Marcos solicita este prestamo para comprar 22 cerdos e instalar una pequeña granja en el patio de su casa y asi poder dedicarse de lleno a la actividad de cria de cerdos. Su ventaja principal es que la carne de cerdo se puede vender a un buen precio aunque es un trabajo arduo. Su más grande sueño es ver a sus hijos graduados. Este es su tercer ciclo en FAMA y ha pagado sus cuotas de manera puntual.
