A loan of $500 helped to buy cement, sand, bricks, and iron to build a room.


Nicolas Tolentino's story

Nicolas is 64 years old and lives in his own house with his 17-year-old son. Nicolas is a hard-working, responsible and visionary man. For the past three years he has been providing transportation services and many people rely on him and seek out his service. He is asking FUSAI for this loan so he can build a small room which he has been unable to complete due to lack of funds. He will use the money to buy cement, sand, bricks, and iron. He hopes that he can count on this financing so that he will be able to improve his family's living conditions.
