Benito's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy the construction materials he needs to build a concrete floor and guard his house against mosquito-borne illnesses.
Benito, 49, and his wife have an 11-year old son. The family lives in a house of their own. Benito has worked on the public transit system of his town for several years and is know for being friendly and modest. He wants to lay concrete over his dirt floor and over the area just outside to guard his family against mosquito-borne illnesses. The heavy rains here leave pools of water that often leave people sick here. He is applying for a FUSAI loan that he will use to buy the sand, gravel and cement he needs to carry out the project. Benito used a previous loan to build a basin for storing water because he didn't have a way before of storing water for the family's everyday use.
