Marvin Antonio's story

Marvin is single and lives in his family home with his parents and siblings. His business is buying and selling corn and pipian which he buys from different farmers in the winter and sells them at the market during the summer. He is careful to cultivate the products, having 10 years of experience, learning this trade from his parents. With the loan, he will buy a motorcycle, corn and pipian which will be useful to improve his workflow, having fresh products to sell to his customers and this investment is expected to strengthen his business and improve his financial situation. His goals are to repay his debt, help his parents financially and build his own home.
