Cristhiam's story

Cristhiam is 33 years old, and lives with his life partner and their three dependent children, aged 12, 9 and 4, in their own home. He makes his living selling beverages, and he is also a day laborer. In order to help him with their expenses, his wife sells fruit and traditional snacks. They both work hard to get by.

Cristhiam is a very enterprising and responsible man. The family dwelling is located in a rural area, and it is very humble, but it is their home. For some time he has wanted to build a small room for the toilet, which at the moment is only protected with plastic and is very uncomfortable. He also wishes to cement over the floor in the cooking area, as it currently creates a lot of dust. He needs to carry out this work as a matter of urgency, as it will make his family much more comfortable, but he does not have the necessary capital. For this reason he is seeking a loan via FUSAI, which will allow him to buy bricks, cement, sand, and galvanized sheet metal. Cristhiam is very happy with this help, and promises to repay the loan within the set period.
