Marlon Jose's story

Sr. Marlon Jose V. R. is 47 years old and married. His wife works as a secretary for a private company. They have three grown children who are students and help them with the household activities. Sr. Marlon is a farmer with more than 20 years of experience. At the moment, he is confronting various pest problems that have diminished his harvest.


Therefore, he is requesting a loan for his crops. He will buy fertilizers and fungicides that will help improve his production. This investment will allow him to experience better conditions in the short-term, provide income to cover his children’s educational expenses, and improve the infrastructure of his home. These are some of his family’s main priorities.
