Manuel Antonio
Manuel is a 34-year-old father of two children. He and his wife run a small local store which they were able to open with the economic support of his father several years ago. Their home is small, part concrete and part wood. When they opened the store there, they did not have much space left for privacy; so they want to build a small area next to their home for the store, in order to offer better service to their customers. They will live more comfortably with this improvement. Among other problems, it has been difficult for them since their horse was stolen, as it was a mode of transportation to buy and sell merchandise.
With this loan they will buy construction materials such as stone, sand, cement, iron and wood to build their store. With previous loans they have made long-term improvements to their house, which have improved the infrastructure of their home.
