A loan of $600 helped to buy sheet metal, purlins, and pins to build a roof, and also buy doors and windows.

Jose Francisco's story

Francisco is thirty years old and lives with his life partner and their three children. Their twin boys are twelve years old and their daughter is one. He is an enterprising man who makes a living as a construction worker. He also paints houses and works as a plumber, which allows him to give his family better living conditions. His partner contributes financially by selling the bread she bakes daily.

Francisco wants to build a roof for his house and also needs to buy doors and windows. As can be seen in the picture, his house doesn't have any and he needs them in order to provide safety for his family and their few belongings. That is why he is requesting a loan from FUSAI, which he will use to buy sheet metal, purlins, and pins for the roof, as well as doors and windows.
