A loan of $500 helped to buy cement, brick, iron, and sand in order to build a retaining wall and secure the land against the water currents when it rains.


Luis Alfredo's story

40-year-old Luis lives in his own home with his family, which is made up of his wife, two children, and his father and mother. For seven years he has made a living through running a store in which he offers a variety of staple goods, and thanks to his charisma and good prices, many people increasingly prefer and demand his goods.

His wish is to protect his house from the currents of rainwater that are damaging the land where he lives. This is why he asks FUSAI for a loan to invest in the purchase of cement, brick, iron, and sand in order to build a retaining wall and secure his land against the water currents when it rains.
