Marcos Joel's story

Joel, 20, has many aspirations. In the next few years, he’d like to prosper in his fine art business. Joel paints portraits and has other jobs. Three years ago he started working with an artist who made fine art and began learning from him until he decided that he would do it himself. Joel started out painting religious themes. He works from Monday to Saturday. If his illness causes him any difficulties, his wife helps him out. She is a housewife and takes care of their 1 year old. His big dream is to have a big bazaar. He is requesting the loan to invest in his fine art.
