A loan of $400 helped to buy cement, bricks, sand, gravel and metal sheets to repar a wall of his home and build a water tank.


Ernesto's story

Ernesto is 51 years old and lives in his own house together with his life partner, his mother and one son who is already an adult. For 7 years, Ernesto has worked as an employee in a business near his town. He is a very hard-working person and is very well-known in his community as a responsible and honest man. Ernesto and his family live in very humble conditions, and he would like to repair the wall of the back part of his home, and also construct a tank for storing water. Because of this, he is requesting this loan from FUSAI to invest in buying cement, bricks, sand, gravel and metal sheets. He is a very committed man, and he says that he will be able to pay the debt with the money he earns, and thus keep the doors of the Foundation open so that he can remain well qualified for future loans.
