Marco Antonio
View original language description ↓
Marco is 35 years of age and lives with his wife and two children. He has made coffins since childhood and, during those years, his father taught him the trade he inherited and that, today, allows him to support his family. Marco has made his coffins for 15 years and always is dedicated to making new models and better paints. He gives all of his time to this business. In winter, he usually reduces his wood supply because he has to plan ahead and buy all of his materials in advance. The goal of his efforts is to have something better for his family.


Marco asks for a loan that he will invest responsibly in wood to avoid the difficulties of the season. His goal is to have a large full-service funeral parlor.
