His land is located in a very agricultural area and close to his house. He sells in all of the nearby towns and has a lot of customers because all of what he sells is of the best quality, at an accessible price, and with good service. He also has another small job at the communal house in town to help meet his household expenses. Marcos is an enterprising, responsible, honest and above all humble man. He likes to take advantage of every opportunity that presents itself. At this time he wants to increase his crop buts he needs materials and capital to buy them, because he always pays for them upfront. That is why he decided to ask INTEGRAL for a loan that will allow him to buy corn and tomato seeds, fertilizer, herbicides, tools, etc. Marcos Cosme has good payment references. He is sure that he will be able to pay the loan succesfully and give his family a better quality of life.
