A loan of $700 helped to buy laminate and pay labourers to repair his home's roof.

Manuel's story

Don Manuel lives in his own home with his wife and two children. He is a very responsible man who is always searching for better economic stability. He works in his own bakery where he makes French bread and sweetbread. He goes out to sell bread before breakfast, which is when people most consume it, as well as at supper time.
He is requesting a loan to improve his home's roof. He will buy laminate and pay the labourers. His income is not enough to cover these costs, and this way his family will be more secure in their home.
