Ricardo Ernesto's story

Ricardo is 33 years old and lives with his wife and three children, ages 3, 12, and 13. His family is most important to him, so he works hard to bring home the bacon. Riardo is mainly a farmer and raises vegetables and fruits. He also works as a mason, having learned this when he was very young and now it allows him to have better work opportunities. He wants to finish building a small house that he started a few months ago, but was not able to finish due to a lack of resources. He is asking for this loan, through FUSAI, to buy galvanized metal, lumber, sand, and cement to finish his house so he and his family can move as soon a possible.
