Manuel De Jesús's story

Manuel is 48 years old and is the farther of two children. He has lived in the same place for 18 years. He works maintaining an area of beach, and he does this with great pleasure. The loan that he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to cover the cost of educating one of his daughters who is in the final phase of her university degree and needs to make a series of payments so that she can graduate. Due to multiple expenses that she has, she is not able to cover these fees. With the loan, he will be able to meet this pressing need to help one of his daughters to finish her degree and, in this way, she will be able to enter the world of work and bring income to the family. It is true that Manuel will not benefit directly, but he will have the satisfaction of seeing his daughter graduate. In the future, he has the goal of getting a loan to buy some fishing equipment as he has time to follow this profession and bring-in extra income to cover the family expenses. He also has the goal of helping his children to succeed through good education and he says that it is the best legacy or inheritance that you can give to your children so that they will have advantages in life.
