El Salvador / Personal Housing Expenses

A loan of $500 helped to buy cement, sand, bricks, iron rods and galvanized sheeting to repair the roof and build walls in his house.


Jose Amado's story

José is 45 years old. He lives in his own house with his life's companion, their 23 year old daughter and their little 3 year old granddaughter. José has a little paint and body workshop. He has had it for a long time and that is why he has experience and customers that prefer him more and more every day. José lives in very humble conditions and has decided to ask for this loan from FUSAI to invest in improving the roof and in building walls in the house. It is in very poor condition and not safe for the family. With the amount he has asked for, he will buy cement, sand, bricks, iron rods and galvanized sheeting. He hopes to have this loan because he can't make the investment on his own but he is able to make the monthly payments that the loan involves.
