A loan of $500 helped to buy corrugated sheet metal, wood, nails, and beams to build a small house.

Juan Francisco's story

Juan, who is 57 years old, lives in the home he owns alongside his 23-year-old daughter and his two little granddaughters, who are ages nine and three. He has worked as a farmer his whole life and that is how he supports his household. Juan is a responsible man who has managed to provide for his family with lots of effort. In order to improve his housing situation he has decided to start building his house, since where he is currently living is deteriorated. He thinks it best to start building a new house on his same plot of land.

He is requesting this loan from FUSAI to invest in purchasing corrugated sheet metal, wood, nails, and beams, since he does not have enough capital for such an expenditure, but he does have the ability to pay off the debt such a loan implies.
