A loan of $250 helped buy supplies for mowing lawns.

Manuel De Jesus's story

Manuel is 51 years old and lives with his wife and their children on a farm that they maintain. He works mowing lawns, traveling to find work or serving customers that ask for his help beforehand. He has many customers that seek him out because the work that he does is very good.

With the profits that he makes from his work he is able to cover the household expenses but it isn't quite enough to allow him get the materials that he uses. For this reason, he is asking for a loan that will allow him to buy all that he needs for his work and also allow him to improve his lawn mover (which is shown in the picture). In this way, he will be able to make more profits and give his family better financial security.
