Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos Alberto is a 42-year old man who lives with his life partner (39 years old), his 1 year-old son and his 16-year old daughter. He works as an automotive mechanic and also sells basic grains, such as corn and beans, to generate additional income. He has several years of experience, which has allowed him to bring home the bacon every day.

Carlos is a hard-working man and wants his family to have the best possible quality of life in a safe house. He wants to finish an extra room that is incomplete and needs walls, windows, ceiling, floor and a door. However, he does not have enough capital to invest, which is why he is requesting a loan to FUSAI to buy cement, sand, bricks for the floor, windows, layers and steel bars, among others. Carlos has good payment references, has committed to settle his debt and is very grateful for the support provided.
