Silvio Euclides's story

Silvio Euclides, 38, lives with his life partner and his three children, ages 18, 9, and 4. He makes a living selling handicrafts of clay and palm leaves. He also sells delicious sorbets.

Silvio has done this job for many years and gained a lot of experience in commerce, which has allowed him to support himself in the business. He has steady customers who prefer him because of the quality of his products and the good prices as well as his incomparable service; he's always ready to help the customers.

Silvio's responsible and very perseverant. He's always looking for the best alternatives so he can get ahead. He's dedicated to his job and to his entire family, because he wants to give them a decent life.

Silvio needs to improve his house with bars on the windows and doors for his children's security. Silvio doesn't have the capital to support this, though, so he decided to ask FUSAI for a loan to buy the doors and the bars for the windows.

Silvio Euclides has a good payment record and is happy to have the help. He's certain he'll be able to pay back the debt by the established deadline.
