Manuel De Jesús
Manuel is 45 years old and lives with his mother. Since he was little he has had to work because he is the oldest of six children. When his father died, the responsibility of helping his brothers and sisters fell to him and so he learned the business of butchering pigs and cattle. After his father died, he took over the family's butchering business, helping his mother. He also grows corn and beans.

He buys the pigs for butchering in areas near the community in which his family lives. Then, he moves the pigs by foot to his butchery because he has no other mode of transportation.

The loan that he is seeking from the Fundación Campo will be used to buy four pigs, which are valued at $250 dollars each and he has already negotiated this price for them. Manuel needs the money because his customers are waiting for his meat and meat products. He says that his business is very profitable. Therefore, he can improve the economic conditions for his mother. His dream is to open a small store that sells basic items and to also sell his pork and beef in more locations.
