Marvin Mardoqueo's story

Marvin is a 33-year-old farmer and lives in his own home with his mother. He grows corn and beans and has many years of valuable experience that allow him to achieve excellent harvests. Marvin sells his crops in the surrounding towns and has many steady customers, who prefer his high-quality crops, very reasonable prices, and unmatched service. Marvin wants to invest in agricultural supplies, but needs capital to make these purchases, so he's applying for a loan from INTEGRAL. This loan will allow Marvin to purchase seeds, manure, insecticide, fertilizers, pest controls, tools, and other supplies. Marvin will then make improvements to his land, which appears in this photograph and is very rocky. Marvin has good financial references and is sure that he'll be able to repay the loan on time. He is also confident that he and his mother will achieve the life they deserve.
