Marco Tulio
Marco Tulio is 38 years old, and he lives in the village of La Pimienta. He has been married to his wife, Mirna, for ten years; and they have an eight year old daughter. Mirna is a housewife, and Marco has a tire sales and repair shop.

The shop is located on the patio of his house. That is where Marco sells new and used tires. He also offers services to change tires, paint cars, and repair damage from accidents. His shop is open nine hours a day from Monday through Saturday.

Marco spent eight years outside of the country. During this time he saved in order to be able to return to Honduras to be close to his family and establish his own business.

This is the first loan that Marco has requested. He will use it to buy tires to stock his shop. His hope for the near future is to manage to be the owner of his own house.
