Manuel's story

Manuel is a rancher. He lives alone with his wife as his children already live in their own households. Manuel has been working in ranching for more than 30 years as his father taught him to work when he was very young. He starts his work at 4.00am and keeps going until 4.00pm. He also provides a passenger transport service. Manuel is currently requesting a loan to buy cattle and also supplies for growing corn such as manure and fertilizers. With this investment, he will have a better herd of cattle and a better harvest of basic grains. Manuel's dream is to work better every day, fighting against setbacks so that he and his wife manage to survive.
