Manuel lives in Manta in the Manabí province. He is 42 years old, single and has one son who attends a public school. He started his own business baking cakes and bread 14 years ago because he had completed a level 1 bakery course. Currently, Manuel works alone from Monday to Sunday between the hours of 4am and 5pm. With this loan, he intends on buying flour, lard, butter and eggs etc. His dream is to keep on growing his business until it becomes a large bakery and is well-known throughout Manta.
