Juan Hernan's story

Juan is 42 years old and has been living alongside his mother in their privately-owned house for the last ten years. Juan is dedicated to his work and looking after his mother. Juan is always looking to get ahead in life. He works as a baker and makes various kinds of bread. With this work he earns an honest living. Juan wants to build a septic tank as he needs it for hygiene reasons. However, he does not have enough money to carry out this work and so is applying for FUSAI for a loan. He will use the loan to buy building materials such as cement, metal bars, mesh, and plumbing joints. Juan trusts that, soon, he will be able to fulfill his dream of building the tank and, then, he and has mother will be very satisfied with the work they will have done.
