Manuel De Jesus
Manuel is a very responsible man with his household responsibilities, since he is characterized by always providing the best for his children. Currently, he lives together with his wife and their two children. He is a farmer and cultivates corn and beans. After the harvest, he works as a construction worker. With the profit he makes from the sale of his harvest and the payments for his labour, he is able to cover some of the household expenses. Manuel wants to increase his sales, which is why he has requested a loan that will allow him to buy seeds, manure, and pesticides among other things and also to improve the soil shown in the photograph where he grows his crops, in order to continue bringing home the daily bread.
