A loan of $425 helped to build a room.

Manuel De Jesus's story

Manuel is 61 and a pensioner. But that hasn't stopped him from moving forward, both for his own sake and that of his wife, as their children are married and don't live with them.

Manuel has been working as an assistant at the town hall since January, 2010.

Our city's temperatures are very extreme, both in the hot season and in the cold season. That is why he is requesting our help to finish building a room in the back part of his house, a room which is now made of cardboard.

He wants to improve his living conditions, in order to have a better legacy to offer his wife.
