Heriberto Antonio's story

Heriberto Antonio, 40 years old, lives with his wife and their three children in a house that they own. He is employed and works in urban waste management. It is a humble but very honorable job. Heriberto Antonio has been working in this post for many years. He is a responsible and determined man who is always seeking alternative opportunities to help provide his family with a better life.

Heriberto Antonio's house is located in a rural area and he needs to make some improvements to it. He plans to install balconies and windows, as well as change the metal panels on his roof so that water doesn't leak into the house during rainy season, and finish building a bedroom. Heriberto Antonio is very excited about these modifications because he knows that it will make his family safer and more comfortable. However, he does't presently have enough capital to purchase everything he needs to carry out the home improvements. For this reason, he decided to request a loan from FUSAI in order to buy windows, window guards, sheet metal, bricks, cement, and other supplies.

Heriberto Antonio is very happy with this help and he assures lenders that he and his wife will do everything possible to get out of debt in the established time period.
