He feels proud of the experience he’s acquired because it helps him produce better harvests. His parcel of land is very accessible and has fertile soil. Everything he produces is sold around his community and he has many customers because people prefer him because he always has what they need: quality products at affordable prices.

Marco is a man who is dedicated to his work; he’s honest, responsible and very humble. He thinks that willpower is the strength and most powerful weapon to reach success. He is determined to increase sales from his crops so he wants to produce still more and needs investment capital to do so which is why he’s asking INTEGRAL for a loan to buy corn seeds, manure, tools, etc. Marco Antonio has good payment references and commits to repay the loan; he’s confident that he will be able to offer his family a better quality of life.
