A loan of $300 helped purchase sheets of galvanized metal and wood to repair the roof of his house.


Alvaro's story

Alvaro is 45 years old and lives in his own home with her family which is made up of her wife and their children. For the past 10 years, he has worked selling clothing in the local market. He offers a variety of garments such as: skirts, blouses, dresses, etc. He earns his living this way and brings home the daily sustenance. His biggest dream is to improve the conditions of his house because the roof is damaged and when it rains, their few belongings get wet. He is requesting a loan from FUSAI to invest in the purchase of galvanized metal sheets and wood to make the repairs as soon as possible and give his family better housing conditions.
