A loan of $800 helped to stock his store with food and other products.

Marco Antonio's story

Marco is 30 years old. He is married, has three children, and lives with his family in Atuntaqui, 15 minutes from Ibarra, in Imbabura province. Marco describes himself as a hard-working and honest person.

Marco works with his wife in their store. He has been working since he was a young boy, with the help of his parents. This has made him very responsible towards his family. Marco has been working with Fodemi for six months. He will use this current loan to stock his store with food and other products so that he can increase his sales. He has customers who are requesting certain products from him which he doesn't have. This investment is very important because it will enable him to improve his income.

Marco's dream is to be able to increase his business and watch his children grow up well with a good education.
