A loan of $500 helped to buy metal sheeting and wood to repair the roof of his house.

Wilber Alexander's story

Wilber is 29 years old and lives in his own house, together with his parents. He works as a mobile vendor of peanuts. Every day, he goes out on different buses in his town to offer his delicious peanuts.

Wilber wants to fix and improve the condition of his house’s roof, given that at this point it has deteriorated and isn’t very safe. Because of this, he is asking for a loan from FUSAI to invest in the purchase of metal sheeting and wood in order to move forward as soon as possible with the roof repairs on his house.
