Marco Fidel's story

Marco is a 50 year old businessperson and father of 6 children. For a number of years he has been buying and selling fruit and vegetables that he sells in the market in his neighborhood. This knowledge was achieved little by little with the experience he had as a worker in the market. Then he decided to become an independent person and opened his own business. He has had problems, mainly financial but also of location. As we can see in the photo he is selling on a sidewalk. This has slowed down several of his projects, which he plans will lead him to greater things.

He has requested a loan to buy fruits and vegetables like bananas, plantains, potatoes, green onion. mangoes, avocados, etc. which he will sell at two different places. His dream is to expand his sales of his product to reach all the corners of the city.
