Optaciano's story

Optaciano is 64 and lives in his own house with his wife and two children, aged 14 and 13. For him, the most important thing is his family, and it is for them that he works hard to meet their needs.
He has worked all his life growing maize and beans, and this is how he provides for his family.

He is asking for a loan through FUASI to invest in the building of a septic tank. With the loan he intends to buy cement, sand, gravel and bricks, as well as paying for the septic tank to be built. Optaciano says that he has the means to repay the loan..
