Manuel Francisco's story

Manuel Francisco is 60 years old, and he has a free-union relationship from which he has four adult children. His wife is a homemaker and businessperson.

They live in the city of Tosagua, a place that has been very affected economically and socially by the pandemic caused by COVID .

He is a hardworking man who does all he can to give his family what they need.

In spite of how difficult things are right now, he keeps going. He has a grocery store in his house where he sells a wide variety of everyday consumer products.

For them, the health crisis left the store in bad shape. In the beginning, he couldn't sell. He later started to sell at the times permitted although fearing getting sick.

But he does it since it's the only way they're able to make a living and keep hope that everything will pass and go back to normal.

This loan is for products to stock his store. He hopes to continue to have good health and help from the loans.
