A loan of $1,200 helped to buy spare parts for his corn grinder.

Manuel De Jesus's story

Manuel lives with his wife and two children aged 7 and 3. He has a metalworking workshop, where he works from 5 a.m. till 6 p.m. He has been doing this for the last 6 years, and he also provides a corn milling service.

He is requesting a new loan for the purchase of spare parts for his grinder, and he will invest a small part of the loan in manure as he is growing corn and wants to improve his plantation. This loan will be useful to him in making repairs to the grinder, and providing a better service for his customers.

Manuel's aspirations are to continue with his workshop and grinder, so that his income grows for the upkeep of his family and his children's education.
