Manuel's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cement, sand and stone to finish his work building a fence wall around his home.

Manuel's story

Manuel is 45 years old and is married with 2 school-aged children. Manuel has been a driver for more than 5 years, working from 7am to 7pm with a few hours' break and 4 days off as well. His wife raises chickens and has a chicken coop on their home farm. With this loan, Manuel will buy cement, sand and stone to finish building a fence wall around their home as well as expanding their coop. His dream is to grow his business and become the largest supplier of chickens. His greatest challenge is finishing his building work so that he can improve his family's income.
