Marcos Vicente's story

Marcos lives in the city of Manta in the province of Manabí. He is married with three children. The two eldest attend public school near the area, and the other has already finished school. Since he was young, Marcos has worked as an assistant in his uncle's auto mechanic shop, but he wanted to go independent and have his own workshop. Now, he has succeeded in this endeavor. He has his own body shop, and he even has an employee. They work together from Monday to Saturday from 8 am o 5 pm.

With this loan, Marcos will buy tools and fix up his premises. His dream is to increase his business so he can hire more employees and this generate work for people who have none.
