Marcos Tulio's story

Marcos has a high school education. He is married and has two small children. His spouse takes care of the home.

Marcos grows tomatoes, güisquiles and loroco (an edible flower). He learned how through and uncle. After getting the harvests, he sells them and that is how he gets his earnings.

He will use the loan to buy agricultural materials to grow vegetables and to pay for the labor to help him.

Marcos plans on buying a bigger plot of land to grow in larger quantities and he would also like to improve his home.
