Manuel De Jesus's story

Mr. Manuel de Jesus T. A. is 47 years old, married, with 2 grandchildren who are dependents. He lives in the Ceibita neighborhood of the city of San Lorenzo. His business is located inside San Lorenzo's new market, and he sells from Monday to Sunday. Manuel is a hard-working man who supports his family. When sales are poor in the market he takes a bus and sells in neighborhoods in San Lorenzo and Nacaome.

He will use the loan to buy clothing and shoes for men, women, and children. Christmas is approaching, which is his busiest time, and he wants to be prepared to satisfy all of his customers' demands.
