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


Jesus's story

Jesús is 58 years old and lives in a house he owns together with his wife, their 19-year-old daughter and their 16-year-old son. He is very hard-working and admirable; in spite of his age he seeks ways to bring his family better opportunities for a good life. He makes a living from agriculture, primarily the cultivation of corn, beans and sorghum. In order to improve their housing conditions, he is asking for this loan from FUSAI to invest in the construction of a small room in his house. With the loan, he will buy brick, cement, sand, gravel and iron. He hopes to be able to count on this support, as providing his family with better living conditions is his most important goal.
