Marvin
Marvin is 44 years old, and is married with 2 children. He used to work as a farmer, but now he works as a driver for a government institution. He is a Christian and a very hardworking person. He has 2 cows that he milks to get milk, cream and milk curd, which he sells. He has been working with livestock since he was a child. At that time he lived only with his mother, because she was a single mother. She was the one who taught him how to make a living, and this is the reason that Marvin has been doing this type of work.

Marvin has a partner and is the father of 2 daughters. His daughters are the ones who motivated him to continue to strive to get ahead with his family. Marvin goes from his canton to a city in the east on a bus to buy two 100-pound sacks of concentrate (animal feed), but with this loan he plans to buy at wholesale so he doesn't have to travel as much, and can save some money.

He is requesting a loan to buy 2 dairy cows and to buy concentrated feed for them. Each cow costs 450 US dollars, so he will buy 2, and will invest the rest of the money in the feed. In this way he will increase his sales, because he will have more products to sell, and his earnings will improve. This will allow him to improve his family's quality of life and provide them with everything they need. Marvin says that with the earnings he obtains he will save, so that he can buy more cows and continue to expand his dairy business.
