A loan of $500 helped to pay for his right to drinking water and buy materials for its installation.


Santiago's story

Santiago is 41 years old and lives in his own home with his life partner and their four children, who are 16, 15, 12 and 10 years old. He is a man of great perseverance who earns his living as a builder. He also works as a day labourer when there is demand for his services, and grows maize and beans for household consumption. His son also contributes to the family finances by working. Santiago wishes to purchase his entitlement to drinking water, as he does not currently have this service, which is so vital for a home. He is therefore seeking a credit from FUSAI in order to pay for his right to drinking water and to buy materials needed for its installation.
