Fausto Rodrigo's story

Fausto is a calm, responsible person regarding his work and family. He lives with his wife and three children in the city of Latacunga in the province of Cotopaxi. Fausto works with one of his sons in his vehicle metal-repair and paint shop. This work has allowed him to cover household expenses and give his children an education. This is his second loan through Fodemi and he plans to use it to buy tools for his workshop, which will help him provide better customer service. In this way, Fausto will be able to increase his customer base as well as his income. Fausto would like to have a larger shop so he could provide better customer service and improve his family's quality of life.
