A loan of $500 helped to buy construction materials for repairing the roof of his house and installing a cement floor.


Israel's story

Israel is 50 years old and resides in his own home along with his life companion and their seven-year-old son who is in school. He and his wife sustain their household by selling “elotes locos” (corn on the cob dressed with various toppings), corn porridge, tamales, and other dishes.

Israel is a hardworking and enterprising man who does not hesitate to travel every day through the main areas of his town with a basket full of products to sell. He wants to improve the conditions of his home, so he decided to request a loan from FUSAI. Israel will invest in the purchase of beams, wood, galvanized sheets, cement, and sand so that he can repair the roof of his home and lay down a cement floor.
