Manuel De Jesús
Manuel de Jesús lives with his mother and his sister. Manuel has always stood out as a very entrepreneurial young man who has great abilities. His work is planting crops. Thanks to his work he is advancing, along with his mother and sister, who help him to shell corn to sell. In addition to selling corn, he sells beans, which they sell in different markets and stores. Because this is the only source of income that they have, Manuel is applying to INTEGRAL for a loan so that he will have the necessary money to invest in his harvest by buying a greater quantity of seeds to plant and by buying compost at the same time. With this he hopes to improve his sales to have a better present and future.
