Marcelino's story

Marcelino is 59 years old, is married and has four children, who are all adults and independent. He says he has been engaged in carpentry for more than 15 years. He began this activity thanks to the support of his father. With the help of his family and with hard work, his business grew rapidly and now he has all the necessary tools for his activity. He is doing very well because he got good reputation in the neighborhood for the good work he always does, and as a result he has been able to give his family everything they need for a decent life.

He is requesting a loan to buy a tool for his workshop, because he has great demand for his work, and thus he will provide better service and speed to his customers.
