Marcos Antonio
Marcos lives with his wife and their four children, who are in school. He has been working in industrial fishing for the past three years and he also works in farming. He learned this business from his family and until now it has been his source of work to support his household.

He is requesting a loan to purchase iron, cement, wire, and planks, which is what he needs in order to make some repairs in his home, since it is not in good condition and he wants his family to live in better conditions and more safely. This loan will allow him to perform the work that needs to be done.

His goal is to improve the construction of his house and to continue his work, fishing and farming, so that he can meet his responsibilities at home and, at the same time, provide adequate conditions.
