Marvin's story

Marvin is 53-years -old, he is married and lives with his wife and son, who are his highest priority. Marvin will use this new loan to buy the tools needed for his automotive repair shop in order improve the quality of the service that he provides to his customers, as well as the delivery time.

Marvin hopes that this investment will provide him the resources to get the income, which will enable him to give his family a better quality of life and greater economic stability; he also expects to keep growing as a person and as a micro entrepreneur. This is the third loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He had not had another loan from a government bank before, until FUDECOSUR offered him better terms than other financial institutions.
