Manuel De Jesus's story

Manuel is 64 years old and lives in his own home along with his wife and son. He has been cultivating sugar cane for the past 30 years. When his crop is ready to be harvested, it is then sold in the neighboring towns. Manuel already has many established customers.

He is requesting a loan in order to buy fertilizers, compost, pest controls, herbicides, and other supplies so that he can improve the land that is shown in the photograph. As a result, he can continue cultivating his crops since this is his only source of income. Manuel will be able to have a better earnings.
