A loan of $500 helped to buy stone, cement, sand and gravel to fix the floor of his home.


Hugo Armando's story

Hugo is 52 years old and lives in his own house together with his longtime life partner. He is a very hard-working man, who with a lot of effort has managed to provide for his family. For the last seven years he has worked as a gardener for a nearby company, which is how he supports his household.

With the aim of improving the family's living conditions he is seeking this loan from FUSAI, to invest in fixing up the floor of their living area, which needs to be filled in so that water does not seep in when it rains. He will use the loan to buy stone, cement, sand and gravel, in order to build a wall and then fill in and compact the ground area so that it will no longer flood.
