Jorge Antonio's story

Jorge Antonio is fifty years old and lives with his life partner and their two childen, who are 16 and 14 years old. He works part-time as a bricklayer, and in the afternoons works as a gardener in different locations in his area. He has several years of experience in his field of work, and has a number of customers because people prefer him due to his very good service. He is a charismatic man who is committed to his work, and is honest and very dynamic. For some time he has needed to invest in repairing the roof of his house, which has deteriorated, and his water filter. These things are causing them to feel unsafe, since it is now the rainy season. He also wants to install a floor throughout his house. He wants to invest in these things, but does not have enough capital to complete the expenditure, which is difficult due to his limited financial circumstances. For this reason he is requesting a loan through FUSAI that will allow him to buy concrete, sheet metal to repair the roof, and bricks for the floor. Jorge Antonio has good payment references from people who know him, and commits to making his debt repayments on time. He is grateful for the help.
