Marino's story

Marino is a great artist who has been working for the last 15 years making paintings, an activity he learned on his own but that thanks to the experience he’s attained has become very well-known for offering very good quality.

Despite having started the business with very little capital, his efforts have made it possible for him to move ahead and today he’s able to provide employment for one person who helps him.

Thanks to the quality of the paintings he paints his sales have grown recently. In a few days, Marino will take part in a fair and in order to meet demand there he’s looking for financing to buy supplies like wood and paint to manufacture the paintings he hopes to respond to demand with. His dream is to become better known and to sell for higher prices because sometimes his income is low due to the high level of competition.
