A loan of $1,575 helped to buy clothing and jewelry.

Manuel Elias's story

Manuel lives in Manta canton and is 25. He decided to look for work so that he could finish his education and help his family. Since no one gave him the chance to work in a company, he used his money to open his clothing business. The business has grown slowly and now has a good client base.

Manuel will use the loan to buy clothing, jewelry, and other merchandise. His goals are to have a clothing and jewelry store, help his family, and improve its well being.
