A loan of $500 helped to buy brick, cement, sand, gravel, and iron.

Maximino's story

Maximino is 60-years-old and lives together with his wife, kids, and grandchildren in the same house. He works as a general contractor for about 8 months of the year. In addition, his daughter helps him with the housing expenses. Maximino is a man who is very business-minded and responsible. His home is located in a rural area and is very simple and a quite small.

For some time, he has wanted to build a retaining wall for greater safety but because of his economic situation he hasn't had the sufficient funds. He wants to carry out the work as soon as possible but he needs capital to purchase the materials. That's why he has asked for a loan from FUSAI which would allow him to buy brick, cement, sand, gravel, and iron. He will save on using labor. Maximino is very happy with the support and agrees to pay off his loan within the set period.
