A loan of $600 helped to buy basic grains, sweets, bread, eggs, instant products and beverages.

Manuel De Jesus's story

Manuel, 65, lives with his wife in their own house. He runs a store and sells essential items such as beans, milk, eggs, bread, coffee, etc., and has been in business for seven years. His vast sales experience has allowed him to improve his earnings. The store is set up in his home which is located in a busy area, so he has many customers for his well-stocked business.

Manuel is a hard worker and, like all good salesmen, wants to increase business by making a new investment. But he does not have the capital to do so and is requesting a loan to buy basic grains, sweets, eggs, bread, beverages, etc. Manuel has a good credit record and is committed to paying back the loan. He trusts this will give his family a better quality of life.
