A loan of $1,200 helped to buy clothing.


Manuel De Jesús's story

64-year old Manuel de Jesús R. E. lives with his wife and is responsible for two young grandchildren who attend school thanks to his efforts. His home is in Soyapango. He and his wife earn their living selling clothing on the streets of San Salvador. It’s a very difficult job, but it is the only income they have to pay their debts so they work hard every day. The loan that Manuel is seeking will be used to buy more clothing and eventually to obtain a stall from which it would be easier to sell their products.
