A loan of $300 helped to buy cement and sand to fix the walls and floor of his house.


Marcos Antonio's story

Marcos, who is 50, lives with his wife and his two kids, aged 15 and 12. All his life he has worked in agriculture, primarily growing corn and beans. This is how he supports his family. His principal asset is his modest house which he has worked hard to improve over time. He wants to make improvements to his house, including to the floor and the walls. This is why he has decided to request a loan from FUSAI. The loan will be used to buy cement and sand with which to fix his walls, which have become worn out over time and need work, and also to improve his floor which is currently a dirt floor. He wants to provide a safer and more hygienic environment for his children so he hopes to receive this support in order to achieve his desire.
