A loan of $500 helped to buy galvanized laminate, pins, and other construction materials to repair the roof of his humble home.


Fredesvindo's story

Fredesvindo is 49 years old, lives in his own house along with his family - his wife and three children ages 19, 24, and 26 years of age. He is a man of vision and he likes to work hard and earn a living honorably. He sells French bread and tamales (a corn masa filled with chicken). From the moment he gets up he tries to have everything that's needed ready for his afternoon sales. He has always had dreams of improving his home so he approached FUSAI in order to buy the galvanized laminate, pins, and other construction materials with the goal of repairing the roof of his humble home as it is very deteriorated and pierced from the smoke of his kitchen. In addition the rains have begun to affect them, filtering through the roof and ruining his few belongings.
