German's story

German is fifty years old and lives in his own home with his life partner and their two adult children, who are now contributing to the household economy. His family is the most important thing to him and he works very hard to improve their living conditions. German works farming and selling a variety of vegetables and herbs like pear squash, green beans, spinach, cilantro, parsley, and black nightshade. In order to provide more safety for his family he has decided to repair the roof of their home, because it is currently in disrepair. He also wants to build a gutter for rain water to flow. He is requesting this loan from FUSAI to purchase corrugated sheet metal, wood, and cement to repair the roof and build the gutter.
