Manuel
Manuel got the chance to work as in a convenience store. As he anticipated, it not only opened a door, but revealed what was behind that door. And what he found was something that defined who he wanted to be. Manuel is 27 years old with 3 children, who are excellent students in the community school. Manuel strives to create opportunities for his children so that they will have good lives in the future.

The work that he does with all of his determination is selling groceries in his community. This business is doing well, as there is not much competition in the area. With this business, he can generate income to support his family, so that they can have a better quality of life in the near future.

He is requesting the loan to purchase land that is for sale. One of Manuel's dreams is to see his children grow up and complete higher education, and to hold significant positions in prestigious companies.
