A loan of $1,000 helped vehicle repair and maintenance.


Marcial's story

Marcial is 35 years old. He lives with his common-law wife. He has two young children, aged ten and eight. They have lived in the same rental house for a long time and own a property in a nearby locality. Marcial has worked as a truck driver for over ten years. For about four years, he has driven his own vehicle as a taxi to supplement his income. Meanwhile, his wife has her own business selling food from their home.

There is a lot of competition in heavy cargo transport, but due to his years of experience, Marcial is a highly solicited driver. As for his taxi service, it is also very competitive, but there is high demand for taxis because they offer a faster means of transport. In the food business, the competition is tough, but Marcial's wife has an established customer base due to her food's flavor and her good customer service.

This loan is going to be used for vehicle repair and maintenance. Because of the car's age, the parts it has need to be checked. Marcial has only had loans with AgroCapital, and his payment history has been good to excellent. It should be noted that Marcial did not want to look at the camera in the photo shown; he is the man seated playing poker.
