Marlon is 24 years old and single. He lives with his parents; his mother is a homemaker and his father is a builder.

He has made a living working in a bookstore for six months. It is his first job since he graduated from college in 2010. Unfortunately, in his country there are very few opportunities for young people to work.

The loan will be invested in the purchase of blocks, cement, and sand to construct the walls and cement floor of the kitchen of his home out of concrete blocks. That way, his parents and he will be more comfortable. Currently, the walls that they have in the kitchen area are made of waddle and daub and dirt.
