Marcos's story

Marcos is 34 years and very hard-working. He has a partner, Sandra, and they have two children. They have been living in the city of Coronel Oviedo for 15 years. Marcas has a turnery. He was left a small turnery by his father and later the turnery grew, with more tools and machinery, thanks to the loans from Fundación Paraguaya, his profits and Marcos' big effort and defiance. He says his job is very demanding because he is the only one in the family who works. His dream is to buy a smaller lathe in order to do other types of work and so progress every day. He is applying for this loan to invest it in various tools such as drills, emery, spanners and so on. This loan will let him invest in his only work and only source of income.
