Marcos's story

Marcos is 41 years old. He is married and has four children, 3 boys and one girl. They all live in the department of Solola. He makes a living growing and selling vegetables, especially onions. It is a profitable business in the city where he lives because he is able to sell his crops at a central market in Guatemala City. He chose this career because it makes enough money in the short term to support his family. He is asking for a loan of $1,300 to help him sell his product to a wider market. His dream is to be able to build a large bedroom for his children.
