Marlon Antonio's story

Marlon is 29 years old and is married. He has worked for more than five years sellings CDs, hats, TV remotes, sound systems and other client orders by traveling to make his sales. It is a tough job because he has to walk under the son and rain to make sales for his daily sustenance.

He is requesting his third loan to improve his home where he lives with his wife and daughter in his mother-in-law's house. He hopes to build at least one room in his home to give his wife and daughter better living conditions. They do not have enough resources to buy their own house. With the loan he will buy construction materials including cement, sand, blocks and iron. Marlon has many wishes to improve his life and has demonstrated an excellent payment record in his previous loans.
