A loan of $500 helped to buy galvanized sheet metal, wood, cement, brick, and sand to build a kitchen.

Rene Dagoberto's story

Rene, who's 37 years old, lives in a house of his own together with his life partner and their children, aged 2, 7, and 10. For Rene, his children are what's most important since his dream is for them to succeed in their education and have better opportunities in life. For a long time, Rene has been selling pan dulce, and this allows him to support his home. With the goal of improving his housing conditions, he is applying for this loan from FUSAI to buy galvanized sheet metal and wood to replace the roof of his kitchen since it's currently dilapidated. In addition, he wants to build walls for the kitchen since it's open-air and not very secure nor sanitary. For this reason, he will buy cement, brick, and sand.
