Santos Marcos
Santos Marcos is 39, and married to Mrs. Miriam Gonzalez Vargas. They live together with their parents and brothers and sisters in the Boca Azul region of the Muelle de los Bueyes town. The family helps him with the farming. When Santos was 14, he started as a small producer, and he has been able to improve his quality of life.

He is asking AFODENIC for financing with a 7 month loan to buy young beef cows. He will fatten them up and sell them at a good price to succeed in getting better income to support his family, and to continue trying to overcome the economic crisis that we are currently facing.
His biggest dream is to be able to increase his herd of cattle to obtain more income, since that is the family’s patrimony.
