A loan of $500 helped to buy sand, cement, gravel, iron bars, and bricks to build a wall around his house for increased security.


Marvin Jhonatan's story

Marvin is twenty-three years old and is single. He lives in a house that he owns together with his relatives. He is a hardworking young man and has been working the land since he was very young.

Every year, he plants corn, beans, pumpkins, oranges, etc. He is able to contribute to home expenses since he sells some of the products that he grows; he also keeps some of the foods for consumption.

His house is very basic, but it is his own. With the hope of making the home more secure and safe for his family, Marvin is requesting this loan from FUSAI. He hopes to invest in the purchase of sand, cement, gravel, iron bars, and bricks to build a surrounding wall that will also retain water that gathers under the house when it rains. He hopes to be able to count on this support, making it possible to build a wall and thereby offer improved security to his home and family.
