Check out Manjaro32 for 32-bit support

Following the footsteps of Arch Linux, Manjaro dropped the 32-bit support in September 2017. Later, Arch Linux 32 came into the picture as a community project, which was soon followed by Manjaro32. It goes without saying that Manjaro32 uses Arch Linux 32 as upstream. So, you need to check out all the details if you wish to continue using Manjaro on your older machine. Here’s the project website link.
