Samuel's story

Samuel is 40 years old and lives with his wife, who is a homemaker, their little 15-month-old baby, and their other children aged 3, 11 and 13. He is very dedicated to his work since he is solely responsible for providing daily sustenance to his household. He is very enterprising and attentive to his activities. Currently he builds metal structures, and he his well-known in his area for the good work that he does and his precision. In everything he does he tries to avoid any errors or problems. His greatest dream at the moment is to get his house into good shape, since his children are small, and this home is all he can give them. For this reason he is seeking a loan through FUSAI so that he can replace his roof. He will buy galvanized material, wooden beams and other materials. Samuel says that when he makes this upgrade to his house he will feel very content, since his children will feel happier and safer in their home.
