Marco Antonio
Marco is 40 years old and lives with his two children and wife in their own home. He has had a food stall close to his home for many years. With the earnings from his sales he is able to cover the household expenses. He is a hard working man and he perseveres to give the best of himself so that his family does not lack any basic needs. He has the satisfaction of having regular customers because his stall is located in a highly transited area.

Marco hopes to expand his stall by buying tables and chairs, and more ingredients including rice, chicken, red meat, beans, fruit and vegetables so that he can have a more varied selection of food and greater earnings. However, he does not have enough capital for this investment. It is for this reason that he approached Integral to take out a loan and be able to buy the items mentioned above. In this way he will obtain greater earnings and enjoy greater economic stability.
