Manuel José's story

41-year old Manuel lives in San Jacinto, a town in the department of Bolívar, with his wife and four children. He has a workshop there where he services and repairs computers. He started the business after identifying an opportunity to make use of his technological knowledge of computers. He had learned how to maintain, assemble, run, and repair computers. His customers come from satisfied clients who have recommended him for his 17 years of experience. Now Manuel is seeking a loan to buy computer equipment so he can over time offer better service in a well-equipped office. This will allow him to grow his business and earn more money that will in turn improve the life of his family.
