He and his wife earn their living selling clothing on the streets of San Salvador. It’s a very difficult job, but it is the only income they have to pay their debts so they work hard every day. The loan that Manuel is seeking will be used to buy more clothing and eventually to obtain a stall from which it would be easier to sell their products.
