A loan of $500 helped to repair the roof.

Jorge Ardiles's story

Jorge Ardiles, 28, has lived in his own house for the last three years with his grandmother and his little boy. He works buying and selling cattle in various places in the zone. He’s an enterprising man who is dedicated to his work and to his family. Within the limits of his possibilities, Jorge is always looking for ways of giving them what they need: comfort and security at home.

The roof needs to be repaired because water leaks in every time it rains. He wants to start this project as soon as possible because the leaks are numerous but because of his economic condition he lacks the capital to back him up which is why he’s asked FUSAI for a loan to buy galvanized metal sheets, cement and roofing purlins. Jorge Ardiles is very happy with the help and feels committed to repay the loan.
