Manuel's story

Manuel is 41 years old and married. He has a son and takes care of two stepchildren and three nephews who have lost their mother and live with him. He earns a living through the business which is run by his wife and he also works for a company as a security guard. This is his 4th loan and they have been duly repaid.
With the loan he intends to purchase foodstuffs such as flour, beans, rice, sugar, cooking oil, eggs, wine, beer, refreshments, juice, etc., so that he can expand the grocery store business he runs in his home.
His dream is to further develop his business, open another store in another area and be able to build a better house to live in.
His dream is the competition in the business.
