Victor Manuel's story

Víctor Manuel, 42, has been living together with his life partner and his mother in a house of their own for eleven years. He sells spices, curtido [a salad made out of cabbage] and candies in bulk. He has been doing this for a couple of years and even if the business has its ups and downs, he makes a living out of it.

He is a determined, hardworking and responsible man, always looking for opportunities to get ahead. He lives in a humble rural area and has been thinking for some time to finish building a room he left unfinished; it needs a roof, floor and a door.

He is eager to start again but does not have the money, since his financial situation is tough. This is why he decided to request a loan at FUSAI to buy galvanized metal sheets, floor tiles and a door, among other things. Víctor Manuel feels very happy and appreciates the help he is receiving. He hopes to pay the installments on time.
